The Mayor and City Council has asked for patience and understanding as it intensifies efforts to clean up the parts of Georgetown overloaded with rubbish.

Certain areas of the city are in need of treatment despite the Solid Waste Management Department clearing 9,550 tons of garbage from the city suburbs over Christmas, says a city council press release.

The council says garbage contractors are working overtime and has once again asked litter offenders to desist from dumping their waste on roadsides and parapets. They say evidence of this is clear to see along Nelson Mandela Avenue, Aubrey Barker Road, East and West Front Road and other thoroughfares.
