Residents of the Ganewalpola area falls ill due to the dumping of garbage


The garbage collectors of the Kekirawa provincial council collects and dumps all garbage of the area at a recycling centre in Ganewalpola, a city located around 5  kilo meters away from the Kekirawa Town.

However the recycling plant is not in operation , hence the recycling is not being carried out at the moment.The dumped garbage is getting collected at the site and only helping the  flies and mosquitoes to breed and  spread all sorts of disease. The authorities had been informed of this issue and no steps has been taken to resolve the problem.
