The Colombo Municipal Council has informed the Supreme Court that no garbage will be disposed at the Meethotamulla garbage site henceforth.

The Counsel appearing on behalf of the Colombo Municipal Council informed of the decision during the fundamental rights petition hearing today (23).

The petition was filed by a group of residents in the region, seeking a court order banning the dumping of waste in Meethotamulla.

The Counsel had also informed the Court that an alternative course of action would be implemented for garbage disposal.

Colombo Municipal Council Didn’t Have a Scientific Methodology for Garbage Recycling.


Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka

Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka said yesterday(28) that  the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) did not have a scientific methodology for garbage recycling.

He said in  parliament that the Colombo Municipal Council had some 70 officials,  who were qualified enough to provide technical assistance on garbage recycling.

He said the Meethotamulla catastrophe had occurred because of several reasons including the continuous dumping of garbage in the area without any scientific methodology and the instability of the ecosystem by way of floods.

The Kesbewa Magistrate’s Court has ordered to suspend the disposal of garbage collected by the Colombo Municipal Council at Karadiyana Waste Management Facility in Piliyandala with effect from tomorrow (29).

The court had previously declared that 350 metric tonnes of garbage be allowed to be disposed at the site per day from April 17 to 28.

However, as municipal authorities had not requested the court to extend this time period, the court declared that disposing waste at the facility will be allowed only for today and the process will be halted from tomorrow (29).
