The Colombo Municipal Council has decided to isolate the collection of garbage in groups within the CMC’s locality.


According to Mayor of Colombo A.J.M Mussammil the new system would aid in reducing the pile-up of garbage within the CMC’s jurisdiction by 20%.


At present garbage collected from in and around Colombo is being disposed of in the Pothuwilkumbura-Meethotamulla area.


Moreover area residents Meethotamulla recently engaged in a protest against the disposal of garbage.


Speaking in this regard Mayor of Colombo A.J.M Mussammil expressed further views regarding the special plan which has been implemented for the collection of garbage within the Colombo Municipal Council Locality.
