garbageTURKS & CAICOS ISLANDS, DECEMBER 1, 2013- Individuals will soon stand liable to pay fines of up to $500, 000 or face 6 months imprisonment if they fail store their garbage properly. Speaking to media, Kenrick Neely, Director of Environmental Health, said the law is already in place and the department will just be enforcing it. He is encouraging residents to cover garbage properly or store in plastic bags until collection as these conditions make perfect breeding grounds for rats, roaches and mosquitoes that are not only pests but also may cause diseases.
