Dear Sir / Madam
Re: Garbage Collection
On behalf of the residents of 22nd District, I am writing to protest over the poor garbage collection in our district over the past week. The garbage has been piling up despite repeated telephone calls to your administration office. The stench is permeating the homes of residents in the district which is affecting our health and sleep. The stray dogs and cats are having a field time rummaging through the garbage.
We, the residents of 22nd District, hope to see prompt action taken upon receipt of this letter so that we will have the peace of mind again in this neighborhood. The collection service before this was commendable.
Below please find the list of 57 residents’ names and signatures of 22nd District making this urgent request. If no action is taken promptly, the 22nd District residents have no choice but to resort to the media.
Thank you for your prompt action.
