Dear Mr. Shawn,

I am writing this letter to bring into your notice the irregularities in services by the Municipal Corporation of our area in Waste Material Collection. This has created a lot of issues for not only me but my neighbours as well and needs to be addressed urgently.

The garbage collection vehicle used to arrive on a regular basis until the last two weeks. It began then collecting on every alternate day, but after that, the gaps increased to two or three days. This has thus resulted in many problems in our area. Firstly, the birds and stray cats tear off the bags in the dumpsters outside the homes and makes it quite messy on the pavements. Secondly, a lot of staunch smell accumulates which makes it difficult to not only breathe but also walk freely by the roadside, especially during nighttime. And lastly, we pay regularly on monthly basis, hence it is important for the vehicle to be on time, every day.

I urge you to kindly look into the matter on an urgency basis. Kindly confirm why the vehicle is not arriving regularly and in case if maintenance issues are there then kindly resolve them. I hope for a prompt response.

Thanking You,

Yours Sincerely

Jarod Stephenson
