Nevis Islands New Tire Baling Machine

Charlestown, Nevis
November 24, 2008

Discarded tires on Nevis will soon be put to use thanks to a new Encore Systems Tirebaler at the Long Point Landfill. The US60, 000 piece of new equipment sponsored by the Canada Fund and the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) was commissioned on Friday November 21, by Minister of Health Hon. Hensley Daniel.

The tirebaler was accessed through a collaborative partnership conceived by the Nevis Solid Waste Management Authority with the assistance of the Nevis Historical and Conservation Society who contacted the Canada Fund. The Four Seasons Resorts Estates provided transportation and paid the freight from Miami to Nevis.

Minister Daniel referred to the partnership as a move embraced by the NIA, who had endeavoured to marry its resources with that of the community, the corporate community and civic organizations to develop the island.

He said ultimately, all who lived on Nevis should have a solid interest to ensure that the island was esthetically appealing particularly as tourism was a mainstay of the island’s economy.

Premier of Nevis Hon. Joseph Parry told the Department of Information that Saturday was designated Clean Up Day and they were creating a greater awareness to keep the island clean among Nevisians.

“Today is our clean up day. We are trying to create the awareness to keep Nevis clean and so the Ministers of government and members of Cabinet are out here on the by-pass road, which I do believe some attention.

“It seems to me that some people have dumped their garbage on the side of the road and we want to impress the people of Nevis ““ men, women, fathers, mothers and children as well, that we need to keep our island clean for ourselves and because of tourism. I hope that this effort will signal a strong message that the government is serious about the environment and keeping Nevis clean and we hope that this will be an example to the rest of the population,” he said.
