Bahamas: Environmentalist condemns oil dumping as “absolutely despicable”

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — A well-known environmentalist yesterday condemned the discovery of oil and other refuse dumped in South Bahamia, Grand Bahama as “absolutely despicable”.

Joe Darville of Waterkeepers Bahamas told Eyewitness News he was directed to the site while in Central Grand Bahama with area MP Iram Lewis working on a community gardening initiative.

“This is an area where over a period of time they had dumped a huge amount of used oil,” he said.

“Obviously some must have come from a car repair place. It was right in the middle of Freeport proper, about 45 feet from one of the main roads in South Bahama, Pinta Avenue.
