Opposition Spokesperson on Local Government Desmond Mckenzie says he’s concerned about the pile-up of garbage in communities across the country.



Mckenzie says the problem poses a serious health risk as the uncollected garbage may provide a breeding ground for pests and insects such as mosquitoes.



The opposition spokesman on local government says given the concerns about the Chikungunya virus, it is critical that immediate steps are taken to address the problem.



McKenzie says he hopes there will be an improvement in garbage collections this week.
