LITTER IN THE JAMESTOWN RUN

ENRD has recently been made aware of the unwelcome pollution caused by the build-up of litter in the Jamestown Run.

Despite the obvious issue of non-biodegradable waste, such as plastics, reaching the ocean, there is also a problem of waste washing downstream and collecting at the mouth of the Run, near Donny's Bar. This accumulation of waste is causing an unpleasant odour, especially considering the current hot weather we are experiencing on St Helena.

The public is therefore reminded that waste should not be thrown into the Run. All waste should be bagged for collection by the Waste Management Services (WMS) Refuse Collection Vehicles.
