Dump Free Cayman
This petition has been started to demand that the ministers of the government of the Cayman Islands take seriously the health, economic, and environmental hazard that is the George Town Landfill. The dump has been studied and analyzed repeatedly with no ministers in the current government willing to make the tough decisions required of them to resolve this horrendous blemish on the beautiful island of Grand Cayman. We request that the current government face the reality that the continued use of the George Town Landfill site is no longer a viable option. We do not request that the dump simply be moved in its current state to another part of the island but that a modern high tech waste management facility be built on another site while the current site is capped. This is the only financially and environmentally viable option. The people of this island deserve a Dump Free Cayman. Cayman has offered the world so much through the tourism and financial industries but has offered the citizens and residents of this beautiful country no resolutions to a very solvable problem. We deserve better. The dump poses health risks in the form of ground and air pollution, environmental risks in the form of pollution running into the North Sound, economic risks in the form of lost tourism reputation and drop in housing markets in the George Town and Seven Mile Beach areas. We deserve better. If you agree that this problem should be the top priority of the current government and that they should stop talking and start actively solving this problem join us by signing this petition for a Dump Free Cayman. We deserve better.
