In the capital, the resident watching the situation says he remains perplexed that not only has the ‘mountain of tires’ as he calls it, grown to an even higher height but despite a promise to remove and shred, Turks and Caicos Environmental Management or TCEM has still not done it. The company contacted Magnetic Media after our last report to explain that they were bringing in a shredder for Provo only, that it would be in country within weeks, but that was two months ago. For Grand Turk, no shredder is coming to deal with the tires there; TCEM has another method in mind but it is yet to be approved by TCIG. The concerned citizen in GT says he also worried about salina contamination, “The ground water run-off is still going straight on the north end of the dump which is completely open and from there into the salina and out to the reef, flowing right past the House of Assembly. Please keep them honest as they think this is forgotten about already and they have gotten away with it.” In Providenciales the problem with tires is the same, despite the contract being signed since and with annual payment to TCEM topping one million dollars. Plus, images and cell phone video of fire burning at the dump were shared with us and when checked, Magnetic Media confirmed that there was a dump fire – one week and a half ago – at the Provo location on Millennium Highway.While it is not TCEM setting these irritating and possibly toxic fires, it is said that the problem points to security breaches or that the garbage collected in Provo is not being buried as TCEM is contracted to do. Magnetic Media is told the contract with TCEM is up for review as it expired since March this year.
