BTVI and landfill operator explore partnership


Officials from the Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute (BTVI) recently visited the landfill site to explore partnership opportunities.

The intent was to look at ways to promote trade related opportunities for students as well as addressing sustainability initiatives at the BTVI campus.

Further, New Providence Ecology Park (NPEP) - the landfill operator – donated tablets for use by BTVI students. NPEP is the first government-approved privately managed integrated waste management landfill in The Bahamas.
