Garbage challenge

Date:

Share post:

Garbage is piling up from the north to the south of the island.

Householders have been complaining about the lack of collection of refuse outside their homes while passers-by have been squirming at the unsightly build-up along the roadways.

The mounting garbage has been blamed on bad dumping habits, littering, residents producing far more rubbish than before and even the time of year. (AC)
