Price of colored garbage bags goes up
The price of colored garbage bags has gone up with at least 25 cents in the districts Wanica and Para. A pack of 10 colored garbage bags currently costs SRD 12.50 in Para and SRD 8.25 in Wanica. One colored garbage was 60 cents in Wanica and SRD 1 in Para. District Commissioner Armand Jurel explained that it was necessary to raise the price because the supplier has raised his prices. He also explained that the administrative service had to raise the price in order to be able to cover the high costs of garbage collection and processing. If the price had not been raised, the administrative service would only make a profit of 1 cent for each garbage bag that was sold. The Para District reportedly does not have proper vehicles to collect garbage which is why two trucks are being rented.
