The head of the Sanitation Department in Municipality Dili, Domingos dos Santos Soriano stated the government is making an effort to build rubbish bins in Dili, but there is no space because the community does not allow it.

He said in 2017, the government had no budget to have a program to build rubbish bins.
"The community does not provide space to allow us to build rubbish bins, this is a big problem for us," he said in Dili.
He added that a few years ago in the Municipality of Dili the sanitation department built many rubbish bins, but they were destroyed by the community, because it was too close to their house where they had built a kiosk.
"Now they ask for build rubbish bins, we cannot build this year as no budget has been allocated,” " he said.
Originally, the existing rubbish bins were provided by the National Program for Village Development (PNDS) to the neighborhoods in Dili.
The building rubbish bins program ended in 2010, when the mobile rubbish bins were created, once they were full they could be picked up, " he informed.
Sr. Domingos dos Santos Soriano acknowledged there was a lack of rubbish bins and that often the community throw rubbish everywhere in the public spaces.
"We ask all the communities in Dili not to throw rubbish arbitrarily, either place in a bag or put in a place provided by the government," he appealed.
According to the Executive Director Luta Hamutuk Organization (LH), Jose Alves da Costa there are not enough existing rubbish bins, there is a need to place more in the neighborhoods, then the communities won’t throw rubbish arbitrarily.
"We should pay attention to the community and provide rubbish bins, we need to renew the rubbish bins when full so animals don’t drag the rubbish out," he said.
He hoped the new VII (7) Constitutional government looks at this issue and increases rubbish bins in neighborhoods and at the same time, the community take responsibility and use them.
A local resident Maria Babo was sad about Dili being full of rubbish, and the rubbish increasing daily because the communities have no conscious.
Sr. Maria Babo urged “the government to build rubbish bins in the neighborhoods, and inform the communities to throw rubbish in the rubbish bins.”
