Garbage truck causing night noise menace

Published:Wednesday | March 14, 2018 | 12:22 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Does it have to be so hard to get some sleep at night? Most certainly so now for the occupants of Oakwood Apartments at 86 Constant Spring Road!

If you happen to be visiting a friend in Oakwood Apartments and are invited to spend the night, you will be told that you had better stay up until at least half an hour after midnight, or later, before you attempt to go to sleep. This is because across the road at Hinduja Global Solutions (HGS), No. 113A Constant Spring Road, for six nights per week, between the hours of 11:30 p.m. and midnight, an abomination of shocking proportions takes place.

At that hour, a blue garbage truck with no apparent identity rampages into the HGS premises (HGS) and does its nasty, pungent, and horribly noisy business, leaving the unfortunate, sleep-deprived, tired and miserable neighbours across the road at Oakwood Apartments to try to salvage the remainder of their night by willing themselves to fall asleep.

This ridiculous and outrageous! Authorities: Stop that garbage truck from operating at night!
