PYRGOS – After seven months of sitting on streets and going uncollected, the trash in this western Peloponnesian town is now too rotten to be collected, authorities said.

Upset that the government has done nothing to help remove the mountain of waste that has grown because a local landfill was closed, town officials said they may close the schools, said Councilor Takis Antonakopoulos, who said the whole board should resign in protest too.

Pharmacists said there’s been a rise in cases of gastroenteritis believed to have been caused by the rotten trash which is festering and getting worse as the weather is getting warmer.

Te trash “has rotted and is no longer collectible,” according to Giorgos Giorgopoulos, the Vice Regional Governor of Ilia.
