WASTE HAULAGE

The Saint Lucia Solid Waste Management Authority issues licenses to person for the provision of a waste collection service. It is the responsibility of the waste hauler to ensure that all waste collected is adequately contained during transportation and disposed at a designated waste management facility.

Before hiring a contractor, check that he/she is registered to carry waste. If in doubt, call the Saint Lucia Waste Management Authority or check this website. In the case of biomedical waste there is only one designated waste hauler. To secure this service you are required to make the appropriate arrangement with the Authority. See the section on waste haulage license  (Section 24 of the Waste Management Act No. 8 of 2oo4),  and remember that the responsibility for correct disposal and treatment rests with the person disposing of the waste provided that they are licensed to do so otherwise the responsibility remains with the generator until the waste is safely disposed at an appropriate facility. .

If you have a long-term contract with a waste disposal contractor, check from time to time that you are not paying for half-full skips to be taken away. The most cost effective system for most companies is to arrange for skips to be emptied only when they are full, to arrange for particular staff to be responsible for the area used for storage of wastes and for sensible packing of wastes to reduce voids.

It is also recommended that you always seek to institute measures to minimise the waste managed and to actively participate in any waste recycling venture available to your establishment. Remember you have a responsibility to manage your waste in a manner which does not compromise your community, the heath of residents and the environment. Play your part!
