Court extends ban on dumping garbage in Muthurajawela

The Supreme Court  extended the order prohibiting the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) from disposing garbage at Muthurajawela till July 25.

A petition was filed by several residents in the area seeking a court order against the disposal of garbage collected from the city of Colombo at the Muthurajawela site.

The petition states that waste is being disposed in Muthurajawela despite the area being named an Environmental Conservation Zone, and that this has resulted in several environmental and health issues surfacing.
