Naxxar trade fair grounds in a dire state

Residents in the street have to withstand the stench of the rubbish that has been left for at least eight weeks during the worst summer months, to fester out in the open.

I would like to bring to the attention of Naxxar mayor Fatima Deguara and the rest of the locality’s councilors, the deleterious state in which the trade fair area has been left.

Weeks have gone by with none of the domestic waste illegally deposited by the football field near Triq Torri tal-Kaptan being collected by the local waste company.

Residents in the street have to withstand the stench of the rubbish that has been left for at least eight weeks during the worst summer months, to fester out in the open.

Adding insult to injury are the witness accounts of our neighbours, who say they watched Naxxar residents from other areas beyond Pjazza Celsi, depositing their own garbage bags by the trade fair pavement!

It is simply an unacceptable situation that has exposed us to the threat of vermin and other stray animals which at night tear garbage bags open.

I hope this plea will not fall on deaf ears and that come next week, the Naxxar local council will have taken effective action with a general clean up of the trade fair area.
