    Come to Mount Lavinia beach and watch the residents along it dump their garbage on to the waves that wash it right back to their backyards!

    very good move, keep it up the good work. but no point taking this matter to court. Should be fined on the spot. Then they know the consequence of their action.

    I would like to request the authorities to implement proper garbage disposal facilities in every town. We find it difficult to dispose garbage as garbage trucks dont come to our areas. Please see that proper action is take regarding this

    One way to stop this is to impose heavy fines. 30,000.00 should be the least. This will make those who want to pollute the river think twice.

    WHEN PEOPLE ARE BUYING LANDS / HOUSES, THEY LOOK FOR ALL THE FACILITIES, EXCEPT PLACES TO PUT THEIR GARBAGE, (THIS IS SPECIALLY FOR YOUNGER GENERATION)

    Our selfish people not educated enough to understand repercussion of these activities.MR failed to implement proper garbage disposal system, instead building the deserted Airport and the Harbor he could have built the Garbage recycled plant and thousands would have been employed.
