Despite truce in conflict , city Gov't urges residents not to take rubbish out
Even though the conflict has apparently been solved, the city Government once again asked residents not to take the rubbish out, in order to help dustmen clear the streets faster on Monday night.
In an official press release, the city government announced that dustcarts would begin collecting rubbish in the next few hours.
Earlier, after meeting with several Ceamse workers’ representatives, BA province Cabinet Chief Alberto Pérez said he felt “optimistic” the conflict would be over soon and apologized to the residents of the province and the city for a strike that left the streets the streets of Buenos Aires filled with rubbish.
A few moments later, after leaving the meeting, union spokesman Jorge Mancini said the rubbish collecting service would be resumed “in a few hours.”
Both parts agreed on meeting again next Wednesday.
The protest began when Ceamse workers rejected an official accord in which the Buenos Aires province and several other municipalities agreed to create new landfills.
