Garbage piling up


Share post:

In the heart of the island’s capital city, garbage piles are growing.

Nowhere is it more apparent than in Fairchild Street, a hub for the island’s fruit and vegetable vendors, where people have dispensed with the filled-to-capacity skip and have just taken to dumping the garbage in its shadow.

A person to whom the DAILY NATION spoke said it had been like that for about a week and he was hoping the Sanitation Service Authority would come soon to remove it.

But this unsightly picture is replicated across the island given the high level of indiscriminate dumping, together with long delays for garbage collection. (HLE)

Here, the overflowing skip and garbage metres away from a number of food establishments and vendors in Fairchild Street.
