Well, after hearing so much rhetoric and debate on the proposed Bodden Town garbage dump site, please allow me to suggest perhaps a neutral idea without stepping on too many toes, on my two cents and hope someone may see it as it makes scents.
We all know, yes, these Islands are beautiful to behold and preservation is the key to any territorial habitat, especially in these times of rapidly increased human population growth that threatens our environment on these Cayman Islands due to consumption and waste product material.
As I look at the increased population on Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac, with Little Cayman at a slow or practically unaffected by this change, I wonder if it is not better to try and somewhat save our two larger Islands that continue to absorb much of the pollutants caused by this garbage disposal and allow for a proper and well managed garbage processing site on either the north-west or south-west end of Little Cayman that would accommodate all three Islands’ disposable material.
Yes, of course this would mean that all disposable waste would have to be shipped out via tug/barge and an increase of employment and decrease on environmental impact to the two larger and human significant Islands this venture would create for now and future generations.
As for the proper storage and transporting of the waste matter aboard tugs and barges, this aspect of the operation should be the least problematic of it all.
Again, my two cents bit and food for thought without stepping on too many toes on the Bodden Town debate.
