DUMPSTERS ON FIRE DISPLEASING TO RESIDENTS IN PORT-AU-PRINCE
(Defen Haiti) -
PORT-AU-PRINCE – On Thursday, residents of Petion-ville, a suburb of the capital, complained of rubbish on fire throughout the city, which made an intoxicating smoke that makes breathing impossible.
"A situation that is a little awkward because the smoke of this waste is highly toxic," said one citizen.
In many places, the old market mountains of garbage are on fire. Despite all this, the street is full of merchants and passers-by.
"And no firefighter, nor anyone from the Service officers of Metropolitan Solid Waste Collection (SMCRS) will put an end this situation," said one wholesaler. "This is seriously affecting our health, but we have to deal with it," he added.
In Port-au-Prince, dumpsters on fire are common. This is how the inhabitants of Port-au-Prince, a very dirty city, get rid of their waste when refuse collection does not pick it up.
