Some 9,500 tons of uncollected waste flood the streets of the French capital, according to the latest report established by the town hall of Paris.
A figure on the rise (200 tonnes more in three days) while 9,300 tonnes of garbage had been counted on Monday, report the media in France.
The services of the town hall indicate that the collection remains difficult given the blockages in the treatment centers. However, “no incinerator is blocked today,” says the municipality.
On the other hand, the waste treatment sites of Syctom (union for the treatment of household waste in Paris and a large part of its suburbs) continue to be subject to blockages, partial or total, according to a press release from the city of Paris.
“70 dumpsters returned full [mardi] and could only be emptied [mercredi] Morning. This further slows down the collection of the day, ”adds the institution.
Wednesday morning, the town hall of Paris brought together a crisis unit with the objective of identifying and carrying out the actions to be taken as a priority.
The garbage collectors’ strike, which began on March 6, should last at least until Monday March 27, according to the unions. The garbage collectors are mobilized against the controversial pension reform, recently adopted by the National Assembly via the use of article 49.3 of the Constitution by the Prime Minister, Elisabeth Borne.
