Say “NO” to odour Garbage trucks should have air-tight doors


Over 1000 garbage trucks go around Hong Kong carrying wastes. As many garbage trucks have no air-tight doors, there may be problems such as dripping of sewage water and dropping of wastes, bringing nuisance to communities. Instead of ignoring the problems, the Government should:

1.implement the regulation of installing air-tight doors in garbage trucks;

2.reinforce the control over garbage trucks without air-tight doors, dripping of sewage and dropping of wastes;

3.set up hotlines allowing citizens to report cases of dripping of sewage and dropping of wastes so that the related department can clean up affected streets as soon as possible.
