I am writing to complain about the rubbish collection station located on Man Wan Road in Homantin.

It is situated right next to a residential building and poses a health risk to residents, because rubbish is piled up outside the station overnight and it attracts a lot of cockroaches and rats.

I am also concerned about the noise created by the refuse trucks between around 6.30am and 7.30am. You can hear the refuse being thrown into the trucks and then the sound of the machinery as it is compressed.

I appeal to the relevant government department to do something to alleviate these problems.
