LCC SHOULD UP THEIR GAME IN GARBAGE COLLECTION IN CBD

Dear Editor,

THE Lusaka City Council (LCC) should up their game in the collection of garbage in the Central Business District (CBD). In my opinion, the council is not doing much on the issue of garbage collection.

It is unacceptable that there are heaps of uncollected garbage in the CBD and at Town Centre Market just a stone’s throw from the Police Post where garbage containers are placed.

The two garbage containers near the Town Centre Police Post get full within a day or two. This is according to the information I gathered from reliable sources. The problem is that it takes too long to pick the garbage at this collecting point.

The roads in the CBD are littered with filth. This is not good because these can be the breeding grounds for waterborne diseases such as cholera.

Worse yet, the heaps of uncollected garbage have killed the purpose of making Lusaka a clean and green city. 

The question begging for an answer is; “why should the capital look dirty?” This is not the way things are supposed to be.

The council and the incoming councilors must find a lasting solution to the problem of having heaps of uncollected garbage in the CBD.

The outlook of Lusaka as the capital city must be exceptionally clean. The quicker this is done the better.

ELEMIYA PHIRI,

Lusaka.
