In recognition of International Coastal Cleanup Day this month, the Manchester Municipal Corporation took on the Alligator Pond Beach as a project. Among the volunteers were students from the Alligator Pond Primary School. Parish Disaster Preparedness Coordinator, La-Jean Powell-Richards, said that there are plans to use all the collected
plastic waste to make a tank to harvest water at Alligator Pond Primary, as a climate change adaptation effort. International Coastal Cleanup Day was this year recognised on Saturday, September 15, but the municipal corporation did its activities a day early.
