THE owner of block of flats near Montagu Shopping Centre and a hospital in the area have registered their displeasure with Ward 6 Councillor Charles Nyatsuro over piles of rubbish in the Avenues.

The flat owner complained that the illegal rubbish dumps in the area were devaluing his property and those of others in the neighbourhood.

Cllr Nyatsuro told Suburban that he had also received complaints from a nearby private hospital over the worsening situation of illegal rubbish dumps.

The hospital complained that some people were burning the rubbish at the dumps causing air pollution.

Cllr Nyatsuro said the City of Harare plans to clear the illegal dump near Montagu Shopping Centre in the Avenues soon following complaints by the flat owner and the private hospital.

“Council is going to make an arrangement to clear the dump,” he said.

Cllr Nyatsuro said the city is collecting refuse in the ward but they sometimes face challenges.

“We have a schedule but sometimes it is not religiously followed due to breakdowns of our refuse trucks and sometimes fuel (shortages),” he said.
