The Mayor and City Council (M&CC) yesterday said that eight of its garbage collection trucks are down for repairs.
This has affected the council’s ability to clear the garbage from certain areas including North-East La Penitence, East Ruimveldt, Lamaha Gardens, Lamaha Springs, North and South Cummingsburg and Kingston, over the last week, a release from the council said.
However, the council anticipates that it will begin cleaning those areas by today.
City officials are pleading with the citizens of Georgetown to wait on its collection trucks and to desist from illegal dumping of garbage on the parapets and in the waterways.
The M&CC also reported that the city’s Vector Control Division is spraying street and surface drains to treat with the increasing number of potential breeding places of mosquitoes.
The team is presently working in the southern section of the city.
