Puerto Plata is drowning in garbage, the lack of efficiency in collection

PUERTO PLATA .- The majority of citizens of Puerto Plata dissatisfied with the municipal management headed by Mayor Walter Musa Meyreles, due to a series of problems that have not been resolved in addition to the infinite pot holes in the streets there are piles of garbage seen everywhere which causes frustration anger amjng the population.

Prior to the undeniable inefficiency in the collection of garbage, the municipal executive was cancelled from his post of the cleaning director of the town council, Abner Guzmán Rivera (Cocó), he was one of the most efficient officials with his management.

The population of Puerto Plata has reacted with surprise to the decision made by Musa Meyreles on Friday afternoon to cancel Mr. Cocó Rivera, who is well known for being an honest, hard working and concerned worker who has been one of the great anonymous heroes who worked 24/7 being an important part of the current mayor’s election campaign in two of the three consecutive periods leading to the front of the local town hall.

So far, no one has been designated in the cleaning department, while the complaints of the people against the Mayor’s office through the media and social networks do not cease because dozens of indignant citizens upload photographs accompanied by comments complaining about improvised landfills in different parts of the city.

From unofficial sources, from this Saturday the mayor Walter Musa Meyreles supposedly will lead an extensive cleaning operation in neighborhood and residential sectors of Puerto Plata that are flooded with garbage despite their efforts had been recognized by the organized structure of the collection of garbage and even came to qualify it as one of the municipalities more efficient of all the Cibao in the care and hygiene of the town, which is now in doubt.

One of the causes of the garbage piles in Puerto Plata is in the non-restructuring of the transport equipment since the compactor trucks and collectors are being kept for a long time in the workshop due to neglect in the maintenance of such equipment. The new containers brought by the mayor have failed to eradicate because if there are no efficient collection trucks and in good condition it is not possible to maintain cleanliness in the city.
