Audley Gordon said : “There are over 200 gases competing on the landfill at any given time and when you have the garbage open, like just thrown around the place, that’s almost inviting fire because the sparks are always there, the combustion taking place and you have the open garbage. One of the things that we started doing is to make sure we cover our disposal facility with more regularity, so where we used to have acres of exposed garbage, you can’t go on any of our landfills now and see more than a small tipping phase, because we have to have a tipping phase and some of them, it depends, like for Riverton, it’s three acres, some of them it’s even smaller,” External link

Audley Gordon said : “It’s difficult to legislate cleanliness, it’s very difficult. If somebody decides to throw out a old stove, we can’t have an enforcement officer or police officer or soldier at every yard gate to stop that from happening.

Audley Gordon said : “If you notice the last carnival, there was a mess uptown after the carnival. However, that is not to say that there weren’t arrangements in place. There were arrangements in place with a private hauler, but what we concluded was that the arrangement was not adequate in terms of the amount of people. The volume of garbage was out of this world,” “We want to make that now backed by the regulation that we must have a say so that an event like carnival, we can anticipate by experience the amount of people, how much garbage will be generated, how many people we should have there picking up, how many bags we should have placed at strategic points, and how many trucks we should have come in the aftermath of the carnival.

Audley Gordon said : “How the programme works is that we would go in [and] employ people from within the community as wardens. Their duty will be to ensure that nothing gets thrown into the gully, but more, they will be given handcarts that they will move the garbage for us. The man down the back of the lane or way down the last fence, he won’t have an excuse because somebody will come,” External link

Audley Gordon outlined : “If you put a transfer station in Daniel Town, instantly Trelawny will become a cleaner parish.

Audley Gordon added : “Not all of us have backyards; not all of us have space to do that. Yes, there are bins that we have designed, and also some that we intend to import, but we want to get the buy-in because when you get the buy-in from the public there are innovative ways to do composting. Even a little keg can be used,” External link

Audley Gordon said : “We will be taking the message across the length and breadth of Jamaica in such a frontal way that it will be difficult for anyone in Jamaica not to know or to understand composting after this solid waste week,” “This message of composting, we believe, is a very important message and if we get it right, that alone would solve a huge problem for us in terms of storage and transporting solid waste,” External link

Audley Gordon said : “There are three units from the fire department helping us and we have two pieces of equipment there fighting the fire. We expect it to be over in a few hours because it is not able to escalate,” External link

jamaicaobserver Thursday, March 28, 2019 9:19:00 AM EAT

Audley Gordon said : “There is much more that we can do; for example, we can demand of people to produce proof, especially commercial entities, that they have proper arrangements in place to remove their solid waste,” External link

jamaicaobserver Tuesday, March 12, 2019 10:21:00 AM EAT

Audley Gordon pointed out : “We do not want those things mixing with the regular garbage. There must be a proper way in which we deal with them. We have already secured a site through the Sugar Company of Jamaica in Hill Run (St Catherine), which will temporarily house e-waste until we can export it or an investor can take it off us, because there is a market for those discarded items,” External link

jamaicaobserver Tuesday, March 12, 2019 10:21:00 AM EAT

Audley Gordon said : “We could save considerably if we move by large bins, and if we do it late at night, we would not have all the traffic to contend with. That saves on petrol and saves the environment too from all the carbon monoxide emissions from these large units in traffic,” External link

jamaicaobserver Wednesday, January 23, 2019 9:30:00 AM EAT

Audley Gordon noted : “Based on our geographical layout, it is too costly to be hauling garbage to some of these sites,” “Whereas we would have one truck making 12 trips to Retirement (disposal site in St James) for example, we could probably have one large bin making two trips and carrying the same amount of garbage,” External link

Audley Gordon commented ( about Antonio Portland ) : "This is a two-day parish operation aimed at ridding the parish of bulky waste, water-holding containers, and other forms of material," "We intend to rid the parish of all the bulky waste that we can get our hands on. We used a town crier over the last three days to inform residents about this operation. Not only are we battling this dengue outbreak, but there is a rodent problem facing Portland. Whatever you have in the backyard that can hold water, which will allow for the breeding of mosquitoes, will be collected. We must clean up our backyard and public spaces" External link

Thanks to TEF (Tourism Enhancement Fund) we have just acquired two new 4x4 pickups which we will be dispatching to rural Jamaica. We intend to get some more and will be in every nook and cranny looking for perpetrators and where gentle suasion doesn't work, we have to enforce,” External link

Audley Gordon said : “The NSWMA has been very supportive of this move. We are in a better place as a country with this move because there is untold damage being done to the environment by plastics and this will move the discourse in a different direction and we're happy to support it wholeheartedly,” External link

Audley Gordon announced : “Concerning PET bottles, in Financial Year 2019/2020, beginning in select communities then gradually spreading it right across Jamaica... we will be asking you to put your plastics in separate bags and we will come for it twice per month.

Audley Gordon said : "The NSWMA, as regulators of the solid waste industry in Jamaica, takes that job seriously now more than ever. I am delighted with the acquisition of these 11 new units. But, ideally, we would require 100 more to efficiently service the industry," External link

Audley Gordon said ( about Jamaica Labour ) : "All Jamaica knows my background. I have served the people of Jamaica on a JLP ticket and I have served my party well. This job did not come as a favour. I had to earn it through a rigorous interview process.

Audley Gordon asked ( about Jamaica Labour ) : "I hear people saying all kinds of things without the facts. I know what I bring to the job. Street smarts, leadership, the will and ability to serve, integrity and a love for my country. I do not have a PhD in garbage collection. I've proven myself. I've served Jamaica working in some of the toughest areas as a police officer. So are people saying I'm good enough to be a policeman but not good enough to collect your garbage?" External link

Audley Gordon said : “How the programme works is that we would go in [and] employ people from within the community as wardens. Their duty will be to ensure that nothing gets thrown into the gully, but more, they will be given handcarts that they will move the garbage for us. The man down the back of the lane or way down the last fence, he won’t have an excuse because somebody will come,” External link

Audley Gordon said : “I have met with men, grown men, who people would call 'bad man' … who would have committed heinous crimes, and I have seen them come to a position in prison where they acknowledge that they have done wrong and cry like babies,” External link

Audley Gordon outlined : “If you put a transfer station in Daniel Town, instantly Trelawny will become a cleaner parish. The truck that now loads in Daniel Town will take roughly two hours to drop off and make another round.

Audley Gordon added : “Not all of us have backyards; not all of us have space to do that. Yes, there are bins that we have designed, and also some that we intend to import, but we want to get the buy-in because when you get the buy-in from the public there are innovative ways to do composting. Even a little keg can be used,” External link

Audley Gordon said : “We will be taking the message across the length and breadth of Jamaica in such a frontal way that it will be difficult for anyone in Jamaica not to know or to understand composting after this solid waste week,” “This message of composting, we believe, is a very important message and if we get it right, that alone would solve a huge problem for us in terms of storage and transporting solid waste,” External link

Audley Gordon pointed out : “We do not want those things mixing with the regular garbage. There must be a proper way in which we deal with them. We have already secured a site through the Sugar Company of Jamaica in Hill Run (St Catherine), which will temporarily house e-waste until we can export it or an investor can take it off us, because there is a market for those discarded items,” External link

Whatever you have in the backyard that can hold water, which will allow for the breeding of mosquitoes, will be collected. We must clean up our backyard and public spaces" External link

Audley Gordon said ( about Jamaica Labour ) : "All Jamaica knows my background. I have served the people of Jamaica on a JLP ticket and I have served my party well. This job did not come as a favour.

Street smarts, leadership, the will and ability to serve, integrity and a love for my country. I do not have a PhD in garbage collection. I've proven myself. I've served Jamaica working in some of the toughest areas as a police officer. So are people saying I'm good enough to be a policeman but not good enough to collect your garbage?" External link
