Read the following letter of complaint.


F.J. Peiris, Pubudupura, Danpitiya. 13.03.2015

The Mayor, Municipal Council, Danpitiya.

Dear Sir,

Complaint against Dumping Garbage in Public Places

I would like to bring to your attention a problem that is faced by the residents of this area.

We have noticed that there is a lot of garbage that has been disposed around the tank bund for the past few months.The tank bund has been a place where many children gather in the evening to play and we have worked very hard to keep that area clean. But today, we see that many ice-cream cups, food wrappers, and polythene bags have been carelessly thrown away all over the area. On rainy days, there is a bad odour in and around the area and there is the risk of spread of diseases.

Please be kind enough to look into this matter as soon as possible. Thank you.

Yours faithfully,


F.J. Peiris.

Copy : The Medical Health Officer - Danpitiya.


Imagine that you are the Mayor of Danpitiya Municipal Council. Write a reply letter to Mr. Peiris informing him of the immediate steps that would be taken to solve the problem.
