The initiative of the Christian Hillside School under the guidance of the St. Maarten Nature Foundation to introduce a recycling program at the school is commendable and should be viewed as an example for businesses and schools on the island. At a recent waste management workshop held locally the key note speaker spoke at length about the advantages of recycling as well as the potential health hazard of the landfill on the community. It is advisable that a recycling plant be established locally accompanied by a  recycling program that would encompass recycling bins placed at homes and businesses and picked up on a regular basis. This would go a long way towards lessening the island’s carbon foot print.
