When a friend suggested the idea, it got the wheels turning for Timothy Oswald Roberts to consider investing in garbage; more specifically trying to help keep the island clean and pristine.
Now in operation for almost a year, Abaco Waste and Transport has seen some modest growth and Mr. Roberts is hopeful for the future of his business.
As Bahamas Waste closed their doors early last year, Mr. Roberts and his sons saw a need for someone else to fill the gap and provide a competitive service for garbage collection on the island.
He currently has 2 rear loading garbage trucks which makes collection of residential garbage easy as well as having the ability to deal with rear load closed top dumpsters.
Mr. Roberts also has 2 Roll On Roll off trucks that can handle the larger bins and open top bins up to 30 yards, he now has about 50 trash bins ranging in sizes from 2 yards to 30 yards and is spread throughout the island of Abaco.
Mr. Roberts and his boys hope to be given the chance to provide more services throughout Abaco in the near future.
