However many residence of the area came out to protest the action of the task force saying; the dumping of refuse on the road was caused by the failure of government to provide appropriate dump sites coupled with the fact that the Local Government refuse removal truck are seen only once in a week.
A residence of Ilo-Awela area identified as Mr Ola who spoke to our correspondence was of the opinion that the action of the task force was wrong saying there was no warning before taking the action. According to him; ''the refuse were much today because people decided to put them out awaiting their trucks that usually pick them up on Thursdays during the weekly environmental sanitation''.
He further challenge the environmental sanitation authority at the Local government level to be alive to their responsibility and ensure that do come out regularly to pick up the refuse.
Attempt to speak with the task force officials were refuted.
