Railway superintendent Dilantha Fernando says that the project on transporting garbage accumulating in the Colombo city limits via train to the Aruwakkalu garbage facility will commence this Saturday.

Attending a media briefing yesterday he noted that if the pilot project carrying garbage in two train carriages prove to be successful, it would be extended to Aruwakkalu.

Further, the hospital chemical waste which was discovered to have been buried in two locations in Hambanthota is to be exhumed today.

The district health services director Dr. Deepika Patabendige noted that the waste which had been buried is not waste that had been eliminated from hospitals belonging to her district.

Meanwhile, our correspondent noted that a substance similar to tar had been washed ashore on the coastal belt extending from Mulativu- Nayaru to Kokilai, last afternoon.
