Budget issues, poor service: Bruxelles-Propreté problems worsen, report says

This picture taken on February 1, 2017 in Paris shows a journalist reading the February 1, 2017 issue of French satirical newspaper "Le Canard Enchaine", with a headline relating to French presidential election candidate for the right-wing Les Republicains (LR) party Francois Fillon allegedly giving his wife fake jobs and reading "Francois Fillon protests in front of investigators: "But since I tell Penelope didn't do anything!"". Fillon on February 1 hit back at fresh claims he paid his family huge sums for doing "fake jobs", accusing the incumbent Socialist government of mounting what he called an "institutional coup d'etat". The scandal, which first erupted last week, is pulling down Fillon's campaign, with a new poll showing that the former PM, who for weeks was the frontrunner in the race, would now be eliminated in the first round of the election in April. The Canard Enchaine newspaper reported on February 1, 2017 that Fillon had arranged for his wife Penelope to be paid around 830,000 euros ($900,000) as a parliamentary aide for more than a decade. / AFP / CHRISTOPHE ARCHAMBAULT (Photo credit should read CHRISTOPHE ARCHAMBAULT/AFP/Getty Images)

A brand new report from Le Soir says problems for public cleanup service Bruxelles-Propreté have skyrocketed over the previous five years.

No structural waste policy is in place and the budget has decreased, which has influenced the standard of service.

1 anonymous source told Le Soir,”it is a tragedy.”

Some people are receiving the brunt of their criticism: Vincent Jumeau, Director General and Fadila Laanan,” Secretary of State in charge. The 2 blame each other.

The”system to amuse PS Brussels” also came under fire. Nearly 500 staffers were hired in the previous five years, which is an increase of 20 percent and an extra 20 million euro in staff costs.
