Home / News / Illegal Fires at the Central Abaco Landfill continue to cause problems
A common view at the Central Abaco Landfill is seeing the area designated for construction and industrial debris burning. November was no exception, as residents as far away as Lubbers and Tilloo were affected by clouds of smoke. The fires are often blamed on scrap-metallers who sneak in the back of the dump and set fire to appliances in order to retrieve copper. Presently the contract for the maintenance and management of the landfill is on hold as the Central Abaco District Council awaits word from Central Government on who will oversee future contracts.
