Letter: Trash in Bodden Town

Your Friday, Nov. 6 story of the horrible situation of the garbage situation in Cuba (“Havana fights trash problem ahead of 500th anniversary”) immediately brought to mind our condition here in Bodden Town, which threatens to be nearly as bad as that in Cuba. One wonders how our island, not affected by any embargo, could let our situation deteriorate to the extent now existing. To add insult to injury, there has been no explanation for the delays of up to three weeks at a time, or any notification to our residents as to when the situation will be regularized.

The irony is the slogan touted some time ago, “No garbage in Bodden Town.” Now, my residents, you have it.
