This weekend Biz from WMIL and Project manager Jaclyn has been visiting every residence across the islands to check they have what they need in place to use the best waste management methods possible. Tips such as clearing around composters and using wheelie bins so that the lids do not blow off, are all ways to enable any community to reduce the possibility of rats around rubbish and to monitor whether there is rat sign more closely.
