Residents In The Vicinity Of The Mandela Dump Site Pleased With Its Closing

For years citizens of the various communities close to the Mandela dump site had to endure the various effects of the garbage site being close to their homes. But some residents are pleased that operations at the dump site which is long overdue will stop as of today.

Residents said when the dump was operational smoke emulating from the site caused much discomfort affecting mostly children. The residents hope that the relevant authorities will work towards having the site completely closed since the dangers remain even after operations would have been ceased.

The only operations being allowed at the Mandela site is that of city council which has the responsibility of pushing back the garbage out of the burial ground and capping the site. Persons are being urged use the new landfill site at Eccles since the dumping days are over at the Mandela site.
