Garbage “adorns” Christmas in sectors of Greater Santo Domingo
SANTO DOMINGO. Greater Santo Domingo woke up yesterday full of garbage, mostly in the inside streets of the barrios where great piles could be seen blocking the streets and sidewalks.
Barrios like Capotillo, San Carlos, Villa Consuelo, Villa Francisca, Cristo Rey, and the areas of Luperon and La Fe, woke up to accumulations of refuse on nearly all of the streets.
This year, it was not only the tradition hangover from Christmas celebrations, where public services function at only half of their normal capacity.
The accumulation was expected, at least by the experts of the city government that make up Greater Santo Domingo, given the difficulty with dumping the refuse at the Duquest garbage dump, something that has been going on for over a week.
To all of this was added the traffic jams and the increase in the mountains of refuse due to increased commercial activities, and the usual reduction of the number of garbage trucks that run throughout the city.
At the Duquesa site, after returning to work at an acceptable rate, last Monday it rained, which warned of renewed deterioration of the roads and the renewed slowing down of the work, although technicians from the city governments that use the dump site said that they were dumping “little by little.”
