A special discussion will be held tomorrow to resolve the issue of garbage disposal in Colombo urgently.

The discussion will be held between the Mayoress of the Colombo Municipal Council, its officials and the garbage disposal company.

Nearly 3,000 metric tons of garbage was piled up within the last 5 days in the Colombo city as a result of the garbage not being collected.

However, the Colombo Municipal Council has decided to transport the garbage from Colombo to the Aruvakkaru Waste Yard in Puttalam. The police have taken measures to provide protection since the garbage tipper trucks were obstructed in several areas.

The Municipal Council has taken measures not to transport garbage disposal trucks during the day considering the ensuing challenges during the transport of garbage.

The Municipal Commissioner of the Colombo Municipal Council Palitha Nanayakkara stated that 20 lorries carrying garbage are traveling from Colombo to the Aruvakkaru waste yard in Puttalam every day.

He also said that the garbage piled up in Colombo and suburbs will take a few more days to clear, even though he had previously mentioned that it could be removed in a day or two.
