The cost to remove the pile-up of garbage at the dumpsite in Paraquita Bay on Tortola has been estimated at $100,000.
Acting Deputy Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Greg Massicote, gave that indication while addressing the Standing Finance Committee (SFC) late last year.
The 2020 report on the SFC meeting said the sum was not budgeted for in 2019.
When asked for a timeframe for the said garbage site to be cleared, Massicote stated that the cleanup process would begin once funds became available in 2020.
The dump comprises a considerable about of metallic waste believed to be debris collected after the onslaught of hurricanes Irma and Maria back in September 2017.
