Police used teargas and water cannons to disperse the protesters at Maligawatta in Dompe who were protesting against the move to dump garbage collected from Colombo at the Maligawatta garbage recycling plant.(Upali Ranaweera)
I pity the garbage truck drivers because they are in the front-line and not those who direct them to the destination they decide. Why not we request our doctors to try this risk for a change?.

Now the govt. is like a headless chicken. They should have thought of the garbage problem years ago. This is going to escalate to a national problem.

This government has to rely on emergency regulations even for a simple task like disposal of garbage and treat the people who are protesting for a justifiable cause, to generous dosages of tear gas and water cannon. This is efficiency at its best.

Guys, there is garbage recycle plant in Dompe with 90 ton capacity. Currently it is under utilized and only 2.5 tons are processed. There is no issue for the people or the environment. Please educate yourselves before jumping the gun and accuse all directions while seated in an AC comfort. What we need is more facilities like this possibly in every district, it even cleans the water prior to releasing to the environment.
