Major garbage disposal crisis in Colombo

18APR2005

The Sri Lankan capital of Colombo is facing a major garbage disposal crisis and the mayor on Friday pleaded with residents and business establishments to bury their garbage in their backyard if possible till the dispute was settled.

The Daily Mirror quoted Mayor Prassana Gunawardena in a statement as saying that emergency measures were necessary to cope with this serious situation and he hoped city residents would cooperate. The CMC is having a dispute with a private garbage collector, one of three disposal firms hired by the municipality to clear garbage, who is responsible for the areas of Borella, Colombo East, and parts of Colombo Central.
