Garbage truck still broken down

Saturday, October 14, 2017. The donated compactor garbage truck appears to have become a permanent decoration piece at the Ministry of Works Compound near the Municipal Airstrip.

The second-hand truck was handed over a couple of months ago with much fanfare.

But less than a week after it was pressed into service, the truck’s engine gave out and it has been parked ever since.

As a result, garbage collection around town has been spotty at best, despite continued assurances from Municipal authorities that garbage is being picked up.

Many residents have been complaining on social media that their garbage is not being picked up.
