Complaints of garbage pile-up at Palmetto Mall
A NUMBER of vendors who operate at the Palmetto Mall and Market in Palmetto Street, The City, are accusing some general workers there of not doing their jobs properly.
As a result, the vendors said they were forced to clean their workspaces themselves.
This came to light yesterday as a general worker, who has been attached to the vendors’ mall for 26 years, complained to the DAILYNATION about the unsightly amounts of garbage piled up in rooms where garbage from the market is stored before it is collected by the Sanitation Service Authority (SSA).
General workers are required to remove garbage from the locked rooms for SSA workers to collect.
One worker who identified himself only as “CJ” from St Philip, said the garbage had been piling up in two rooms for the past two weeks. He said both rooms were not just filled to capacity with garbage from the market, but other items that should not be in the regular garbage such as glass.
