Residents in Chikanga and Hobhouse have bemoaned inconsistency by City of mutare in refuse collection in their area. Those who spoke said City council’s failure to collect refuse on time has led people to resort to dumping waste in undesignated areas thereby posing health hazards to residents. Pursuant to the matter City spokesperson Spren Mutiwi said they are facing challenges in maintaining the refuse collection schedule owing to depleted fleet and aging refuse compactors which he said are failing to cope with the increasing waste collection demand.
