Garbage collectors protest in front of the Municipalidad de San Jose offices and works yard on Avenida 10.

QCOSTARICA – Some 400 tons of garbage accumulated in the streets of San Jose Thursday, with the work stoppage by the city’s garbage collectors.

The workers began protesting at 6:00am because they say they lack the proper equipment to do their job and the municipality’s failure to pay overtime.

Walter Quesada, the head of the workers union, the Asociación Nacional de Empleados Públicos y Privados (ANEP), said that about 300 garbage collectors joined the protest, meanwhile union officials and the Mayor of San Jose, Sandra Garcia, were in meetings to find a solution to the conflict.
