(ZIZ)— In the midst of Carnival the Ministry of Health has been complimented for keeping the streets clean and the environment healthy in light of the on-going festivities.
Chief Environmental Health Officer Alexander Riley says they have had to assess the situation and put in place the extra street cleaning team for the season.
Riley says this requires different schedule for street cleaners, although the regular schedule is still in place.
The Environmental Health Officer says street cleaners were on location following J’ouvert, the Junior Carnival Parade and the Grand Carnival Parade on Tuesday.
Riley is still appealing to revelers to use the bins that the Ministry OF Health has strategically placed throughout Basseterre for the holidays.
