My house is not too far from where your pictures were taken and I have been complaining for years about the filth that accumulate in the gutter. This was one of the reasons why I wanted a town council that would take care of the environment. I have seen Trini cleaning one side of the street, but the other side facing the water is always left undone. People complains that the town clerk, a friend of Louis and a ULP supporter doesn’t even leave her office to monitor the streets and gutters.
Edmond is a friend and he cleans his side of the street every day. You should have taken a picture of that. There are garbage bins in the area, but folks just throw their garbage in the gutter, so don’t blame Edmond. If he puts a garbage bin out there, they would steal it just like they did to those the government placed there.
The US Congress passed a bill in 2006, The Marine Debris Research, Prevention, and Reduction Act, to create a program to address the marine debris pollution. One of the requirements in the bill was for NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and the . Coast Guard, to promulgate a definition of marine debris for the purposes of the Act. Thus, USCG and NOAA drafted and published a definition of marine debris in September 2009. The definition is this: “Any persistent solid material that is manufactured or processed and directly or indirectly, intentionally or unintentionally, disposed of or abandoned into the marine environment or the Great Lakes.” Marine debris can come in many forms, from a plastic soda bottle to a derelict vessel. Types and components of marine debris include plastics, glass, metal, Styrofoam, rubber, derelict fishing gear, and derelict vessels.
