An industrial estate will replace the dump at the Beetham Estate, Finance Minister Colm Imbert said Monday.
Imbert stated that the current landfill will be moved and there will be increased emphasis on recycling and incinerators.
He did not indicate the proposed site for the new dump.
He repeated plans for relocation of the city port to Sea Lots, and added that an industrial estate will be constructed at the nearby Beetham Estate.
The current area of the Port of Spain port will be assigned to real estate, Imbert said on TV6’s Morning Edition talk show.
The Minister did not provide a time frame for the projects.
Asked about the use of green energy, he pointed to incentives for electric and hybrid vehicles.
