Friday 5th June 2015 marks the celebration of World Environment Day internationally. It is a day that stimulates awareness of the environment and enhances public attention and action. While primary focus is placed on the sustainable development of the biophysical environment, the ultimate objective is to create a green economy that results in improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks.

In this regard, the Trinidad and Tobago Solid Waste Management Company Limited, SWMCOL and the Industrial General and Sanitation Workers Union (IGSWU) deemed this day, World Environment day, as most significant  to celebrate the conclusion of negotiations for the period 2011 to 2013 between the Company and the Industrial General and Sanitation Workers Union (IGSWU), which represents the daily-paid employees.
the signing of the Collective Agreement.
