Waste management in Haiti: There is a serious Garbage problem in Haiti

Haiti Trash - Plastics and Styrofoams

There is NO garbage collection in Hinche, by that I mean a day of the week when people put their garbage out so the garbage truck comes by to pick it up. We don't have that. So people wait until late afternoon and they their trash, dead dogs and all, wherever there is no one around.

Growing up in Hinche, I used to enjoy bathing in the Guayamounco river, but NOT anymore! Too much trash along the river bed.

How is the Garbage collection going in your city in Haiti?

What do you think about that?
