The New Providence Landfill,

New Providence Island

In 2017, STB launched legal proceedings over the repeated fires that raged at the The New Providence Landfill, blanketing the surrounded communities in toxic smoke and leading to a number of serious health problems, particularly for children.

With the announcement of a new manager for the Landfill and a full remediation program, STB is taking a wait-and-see approach, and the lawsuit is on hold for the time being, although the damages will in time have to be paid to those nearby residents who have been abused by toxic pollution for so long.
