To the ''Kakkaitivu'' dump! | காக்கைதீவூ குப்பையிற்கே

by Hasarel Gallage

There is widespread criticism expressed by people on dumping garbage on both sides of the Market Road of Kaakkaithivu, Jaffna. Garbage is being disposed irregularly and do not get collected and cleaned in a regular basis which has been a cause for environmental pollution, bad smell and notably outbreak of diseases putting the health and well-being of the residents of Kaakkaithivu at risk. The local authorities have already laid plans to have a recycling facility but they request the cooperation of the people.

Arunthavachchelvan Anithdrokshan, a young mobile storyteller trained under the "Mobile Storytelling" program launched by SDJF in collaboration with iVoice and Neelan Thiruchelvam Trust (NTT) wants the authorities to look into this matter and do the justice to the community.
