Georgetown’s garbage – Citizens say blame game should stop

Citizens believe the blame game should stop and systems put in place to deal with the city’s garbage

Some citizens believe that the blame game should stop and systems put in place to deal with the garbage situation.

When Capitol News took its cameras to the streets some citizens  described the situation as shameful and pointed to the bad image it gives to this country.

One resident also  called  for the reopening of the Princess Street incinerator since in his mind things were far better when it was operational.
And some people we spoke with believe  that a collective approach is needed and that the council needs to get more serious with persons who are littering indiscriminately.

City Hall is saying that the lack of finance is severely affecting their daily management of the city.
