Stock Creek Residents Complain
Story by Victor C. Hanson Jr. (Trainee)
Reports reaching the INQUIRER say several Liberians are not malaria-free due to poor hygienic environments infested with mosquitoes. Nearly every community in and around Monrovia is filled with huge stockpile of garbage, and the burning of it creates serious health hazard when the smoke is inhaled by anyone.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) dirt burning is dangerous and can cause multiple health implications in various communities.
In many communities, the spread of garbage sometimes causes incurable diseases, which tantamount to destroying the lives of innocent residents.
With allusion to these alarming health problems, most recent case has to do with the Stockton Creek 'SOLID WASTE TRANSFER STATION' which is right after the Jamaica Road Bridge thus polluting the air where countless of residents live.
Residents in the community have been complaining about this problem and it seems that nothing has been done to curtail the unfortunate situation.
