Garbage on road

City corporation workers load garbage, dumped at a corner of a road, on an open truck in Begunbari area of Tejgaon in the capital around 1:00pm yesterday. Such vehicles currently used for the purpose give off a foul odour. The daytime garbage pick-up not only causes nuisance but also traffic jam. The High Court on Monday directed both the city corporations to have garbage taken by covered trucks or vans between 10:00pm and 6:00am every day. Photo: Star
