Bosai to gift compactor truck to Linden municipality
A brand-new compactor truck is set to be handed over to the municipality of the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC), compliments of bauxite mining company Bosai Minerals Group Guyana Incorporated (BMGGI).Carwyn Holland, who had lobbied for the truck while on a trip to China during his tenure as mayor, was recently invited by the company’s General Manager, Eric Yu, to inspect the truck which has arrived in Guyana from China.This is a boost for the Linden municipality as it relates to its garbage collection efforts, as this will now make a total of four compactor trucks in its possession.“As I’d announced a while back — that I’d successfully lobbied for a large compactor truck for Linden; I’m pleased to state that the gift has arrived, and will soon be handed over to the town”, Holland stated.According to the former mayor, there should now be no excuse for the garbage situation in the community not being rectified. Holland said he was happy and thankful for the gift to the municipality, noting that one of his plans as Mayor had been to eradicate the garbage woes in Linden. The former mayor had also been instrumental in terms of the municipality having resources and finances to secure compactor trucks, two of which were recently purchased. He said residents should now be able to enjoy timely and quality garbage collection, and as such, a healthier environment. Holland noted that the compactor truck which is set to be handed over is a larger one, and he is optimistic that residents will now be more motivated to pay their taxes. He also wished the municipality well with the new truck.
