Garbage piling up in some parts of Prague

Prague’s garbage disposal services are having problems dealing with overflowing garbage containers around the city. Responding to complaints from citizens a press spokeswoman for Prague’s waste disposal services said the city’s garbage vans were making several rounds a day, but were unable to cope in view of the several-fold increase of garbage over Christmas. The service is bracing for more problems in the wake of New Year’s Eve celebrations, but has promised that things will be back to normal within two to three days.
