In view of the crisis created by the failure of authorities to collect garbage recently, the Daily Mirror has decided to petition the Task Force Unit established at the Provincial Council and Local Government Ministry with a list of areas where garbage remains uncollected.

We request our readers affected by the crisis to send the location of such areas, by way of comments so that we could forward details to the ministry.

Readers could also contact the Task Force Unit directly on 0112 302722

    Garbage not collected at Sudarshanan mw, nungamugoda, kelaniya for wks. Can the authorities also catch those who dispose garbage at roadside. Many individuals are dumping their dirt during nights at roads and it is difficult for the residents due to stinch, mosquitoes and hell load of flies. Please can some action be taken to catch those responsible and they should be thought a lesson for their life.

    M Varathapalan Wednesday, 21 June 2017 05:50 AM

    Madinnagoda Road, Rajagiriya. A bye road just before the bridge is being used as a dumping ground by many people. It is just twenty metres off the main road and visible to any garbage truck going on the road. No attempt made to clear it. Over a month.

    The Kaduwela Municipal Council has instructed the residents of Jayawadanagama,Battaramulla to burn all polythene,paper,clothes etc. simply because they are not going to collect them. People are burning up these garbage everyday and now it is making the residents sick with asthma, cough etc. Is this the solution that the Govt. has given for the garbage problem? Pollute the air and make people sick?Please take action to stop this as elderly people and little children are falling sick.

    Garbage not collected in Bloemendhal Road, Mutwal, Colombo 15 for a long time. The garbage collectors keep their carts near Bo Tree junction and near the railway track near oil tanks and only collect garbage from cars that stop and open the booth for the collectors to get them and then they are paid.

    Thimbirigasyaya Area. We separate all waste into glass, paper, plastic, mixed, bio-degradable. Yet they refuse to take some solid waste (timber pieces). But will apparently take them if we pay up about Rs.500We do not encourage a culture of bribing so we are holding onto this trash for months now.

    Vasenth Wednesday, 21 June 2017 09:12 AM

    Garbage from Fredrica Road Wellawatte has not been collected for five days within today which are both side of road so I kindly request your attention in this regard please.Thank you.
