Mr. Randolph Browne, Supervisor of Enforcement at the SWMC accepts his letter of appointment as a litter warden from the Corporation’s Chairman of the Board of Directors Ivan Hanley.

Sixteen workers at the St. Kitts Solid Waste Management Corporation recently received notification of their appointments as litter wardens. The letters were presented by Chairman of the Board of Directors Mr. Ivan Hanley during a general staff meeting at the Corporation’s headquarters in Taylors Range. Ms. Candace Caines, Assistant General Manager of the SWMC said that the General Manager had sought the approval from the minister for 16 new persons within the corporation to be gazetted as litter wardens. “I have here in my hand a letter with your appointment. You will receive your official gazetted document very shortly, but for now you will receive this as an official notice that you are a litter warden,” she said. “It includes not just the litter wardens (but) members of management, members of the landfill staff, the security staff—it is a very important job that each of us have to do. It’s not just about going out and ticketing people, it’s giving good advice, warning people. Your job is critical as a litter warden,” Ms. Caines added.

The 16 appointments are:
