Residents of Abovian town dump garbage and debris in the streets after
garbage trucks disappear. Garbage cans stand half-full surrounded
with garbage sacks wrapped in cellophane.

Rubbish-heaps have become common near the town market selling
vegetables and fruit. Greengrocers say that every morning refuse
tippers pick up garbage of the previous day.

Residents don't even pity scavangers and street-cleaners. They throw
garbage out of the windows. One cannot even step some blocks of flats
as debris and household rubbish are dumped just at the entrance.
