We had and continue to witness that some people, without remorse, openly drop waste in the streets, while others dump the waste into drains that are meant to carry waste water. This untidy habit is still prevalent in Monrovia and its environs. The relevant government agencies, specifically the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC) had and continues to express serious concern over what we consider as an unwarranted act, which authorities say, contributes greatly to the untidy nature of some parts of Monrovia and its environs.
As a result of this unwarranted act, it is often common during the raining reason, which we are currently experiencing, to find drains chocked to the brain with solid waste materials, mainly plastic bags and feces. The disgusting scent from these drains is huge, not to mentions about providing a breeding ground for mosquitoes, which causes malaria and water borne diseases In consideration of the danger the dumping of solid waste in the streets and into drains continues to pose to our environment, we again urge all those who are involved in this uncalled-for habit to stop. We beg the doers to stop this unjustified act, as it is doing more harm to our country than good.
We all need to buttress the efforts of the government through other relevant agencies, including the MCC in keeping our homes, communities and cities clean for the betterment of beloved country, Liberia.
