The HelaoNafidi Town Council plans to relocate the local dumpsite

The HelaoNafidi Town Council plans to relocate the local dumpsite after residents complained of the smoke produced when rubbish is burned.

The town's mayor, EliaserNghipangelwa, during a media briefing on Thursday said the council has resolved to relocate the dumpsite in order to address the problem.

He said the council used to burn rubbish at the site but stopped after residents notified the council that they are unhappy about the smoke as they feared it was a health hazard.

The dumpsite is situated in Omafo and the site identified for the new rubbish dump is in the Engela suburb.

One of the affected residents, NdahafaNatanael told the media on the site Thursday the smoke caused by the burning of waste had become problematic.
