The Ministry of VROMI is responsible for the care of civil technical works on St. Maarten, among which is considered the management of the sanitary landfill.
Given the sporadic fires that occurred the past months on the landfill and the related public concerns, the Honorable Minister of VROMI, Angel Meyers, has requested SOAB’s assistance in assessing the current situation and providing recommendations where necessary.
The Minister of VROMI explained:
“With the results of this engagement the Ministry of VROMI is aiming to gain insight to their current risk exposure as the responsible Ministry for waste management and to ensure that the appropriate checks and balances can be implemented to minimize the risks. The ultimate goal is for the government of St. Maarten to ensure the sanitary landfill is managed optimally, which off course is in the best interest of the people of country St. Maarten”.
SOAB’s Audit Manager | Country Manager, Drs. Candia Joseph, will be spearheading this assignment within short.
