Many "duty free" shops cater to visitors: from cruise ships. Bridgetown's main street hosts numerous jewellers, most frequently Colombian Emeralds and Diamonds International. Cave Shepherd department store offers a wide range of mercantile, while Harrison's offers premium gifts, leathers and cosmetics. Other smaller stores offer virtually everything a visitor or resident might need. A small mall at the harbour also offers decent prices and selection (for rum and UK liquors), but goods produced in Barbados may be slightly more expensive there than elsewhere on the island.
We have estimated that we have approximately 200,000 cubic yards of debris to clean-up. This amount of debris would fill a space as high as a 10-story building, with a footprint the size of a football field. Approximately 10% of that total amount of debris has been collected; 30% of the debris on public roads has been picked up. Unfortunately, these crews cannot be everywhere at the same time so this process is going to take a while. In past events, debris clean-up resources were focused in a much smaller area, say one or two counties. With Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, debris clean up resources have been stretched quite thin. In the meantime, separating your vegetation debris, demolition debris and bulk waste will greatly speed up the collection process and ensure that your materials are collected. We appreciate your cooperation and patience.
