PORT Elizabeth is in a sorry state after the festive season. Residents and tourists, in letters to the Herald, have complained about huge amounts of litter lying discarded, uncollected refuse bags, overgrown verges, traffic islands and parks, and the general lack of cleanliness and maintenance in the city.
Yesterday, we also reported that the Fifth Avenue waste transfer site in Walmer was nearing capacity and that the municipality was battling to clear the site after the festive season.
However, despite the flood of complaints, the municipality said yesterday it had received a lot of positive feedback regarding its cleaning over the festive season.
