The New Providence Ecology Park (NPEP) enhances its revitalization of the New Providence Landfill, announcing a fleet of new equipment to increase efficiencies at the Park.

The equipment, which consists of more than 13 new machines, represents a $3 million investment in the site’s continued transformation. This pivotal purchase shifts the organization’s reliance from rented machinery, to brand new proprietary machines, reducing equipment costs and significantly increasing reliability.

“This investment further demonstrates our long-term commitment to developing the Park into a world-class example for the region,” stated Henry Dean, NPEP Operations Committee Chairman. “We are digging in and evolving our processes to ensure NPEP remains both effective and efficient as we continue to progress.”

Among the machinery is a multi-purpose grinder that reduces the volume of waste to as little as 10% of its original size. A tyre shredder has also been purchased, which will enable NPEP to chip tyres onsite and greatly reduce the accumulation of tyres at the Park.

“We are meticulous in our management of NPEP, and in just 15 short months, we have successfully remediated the urgent challenges at the site. The purchase of this equipment is one more leap toward fulfilling our commitment in the evolvement of waste management in The Bahamas and the development of a thriving ecology park,” stated Dean.
