Garbage strewn across many streets, added to the dilapidated condition of the roads, is making life miserable for residents of Frequente, Grand Anse, St. George’s.
As there seems no respite on the horizon, they are calling on the relevant authorities to look into the indiscriminate disposal of garbage in the vicinity. According to residents, the amount of garbage that over spills the bins and is scattered along the roadside, is very disturbing to residents of the district. The action of stray dogs compounds the problem, since they aid in spreading the refuse far from the dumping site.
One resident said that most times by the time the garbage truck passes to collect the garbage, most of it is already scattered far and wide. Frustrated residents are calling on the relevant authorities to look into the matter as soon as possible because of the environmental and health threat it presents.
