  • Description

    THE ROME CITY COUNCIL HAS BEGUN DISTRIBUTING MILLIONS OF PLASTIC BAGS THROUGHOUT THE CITY AS GARBAGEMEN CONTINUE THEIR STRIKE FOR BETTER PAY AND WORKING CONDITIONS.

    THE STRIKE IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE FOR AT LEAST FOUR DAYS. HOUSEHOLDERS HAVE BEEN ASKED TO SEAL THEIR REFUSE IN THE PLASTIC BAGS AND KEEP THEM INDOORS UNTIL THE STRIKE ENDS BECAUSE OF THE HEALTH RISK AS WARM SPRING WEATHER SWEEPS THROUGH ROME.

    ABOUT 200 POLICE LORRIES HAVE BEEN BROUGHT INTO ACTION TO HELP CLEAR SOME OF THE REFUSE FROM THE STREETS AND A FEW REFUSE COLLECTORS WHO BELONG TO TRADES UNIONS NOT INVOLVED IN THE STRIKE ARE ALSO WORKING.
