Wed, Apr 19, 2017, 12:43 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 19, Colombo: Residents in Karadiyana have staged a protest today against the disposal of solid waste from Colombo in the Karadiyana waste management center.

The demonstration by the Karadiyana residents has hampered traffic in Werehera and motorists were advised to take alternate routes.

The government decided yesterday that garbage from Colombo, previously dumped at Meethotamulla, would be disposed at five sites including Karadiyana and Dompe.

The Kesbewa Magistrate granted permission to Colombo Municipal Council to dispose 350 metric tons of garbage collected daily from the city of Colombo to Karadiyana site until the 28th of this month.

However, residents have opposed the move claiming the project would cause inconvenience to them.

Hundreds of people yesterday protested against the attempt to dispose garbage to the Kirindiwela- Maligawatte integrated waste management center.
