Old Tires Dumped at Bong Mines Bridge

first_imgResidents near Bong Mines Bridge on Bushrod Island have complained about the dumping of old tires in their community, and are calling on authorities to hold those responsible for it.Interviews conducted over the weekend revealed that the old tires are dumped during the night hours by unidentified persons. Some residents told the Daily Observer that they have tried identifying the perpetrators by monitoring the situation near the bridge, but without success.Although businesses near the bridge include a tire center, its operators told the Daily Observer that they are not the ones dumping tires in the community.“It will be stupid for us to do a thing like since we have our business in the area,” an operator, who asked to remain anonymous, said. “We have seen the old tires at the location and have wondered who may be doing it.”Workers at an entertainment center close to the bridge told the Daily Observer that they are also aware of the increasing number of old tires being dumped under the bridge. “We can never allow anyone to do a thing like that,” a worker said. However, the number of dumped old tires increases daily, forming a straight line towards the former Coast Guard base.Meanwhile, residents have appealed to the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC) and the Borough of New Kru Town to work together to ensure that old tires are dumped at appropriate locations to ensure environmental safety.“We also want the authorities to ensure that those who dump such things indiscriminately are punished,” a resident said.At the Duala Market, a team of sanitation workers told the Daily Observer that many Liberians throw garbage anywhere because “we are there to clean it.”“Old tires should have a special way to be disposed of, but we are people who don’t care about what we do to our environment,” one of them said. “We hope that now that you are drawing attention to this bad practice, our ‘big people’ can find a way to ensure that such a practice stops.”Meanwhile, Ministry of Transport officials on Warren Street were shocked when they were shown pictures of the old tires.“This is just unfortunate,” a transport official said, “it is good that you are drawing attention to this, and hopefully we can all work together to end this bad practice.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
