Dzivaresekwa Extension residents are not happy about non-collection of refuse for more than three years by the Harare City Council.

Concerned residents told ZBC News that the situation needs urgent attention since their lives are in danger of disease outbreaks.

Dzivaresekwa constituency ward 40 councilor, Cde Samuel Garachani said council is failing to collect the garbage in the area due non-payment of refuse collection levies by residents as the area does not have a certificate of compliance.

He also said they are working tirelessly to mobilise resources for a clean-up campaign in two weeks time.

The area has also a poor road network and sewerage system.
