SSA: Holidays partly to blame
Blame recent bank holidays for the pile-up of garbage around the island.
This is the explanation from public relations officer at the Sanitation Services Authority (SSA) Carl Padmore.
Speaking in the wake of recent complaints of large piles of garbage which remained uncollected in some City areas and other communities across the island for weeks on end, Padmore said also that part of the problem had been a lack of vehicles.
But that had been resolved with the new fleet acquired by the SSA.
“Once you have a breakdown in vehicles you would have a slight haemorrhaging but it was not at a crisis proportion,” Padmore said.
