Haghpat=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=s Trash Woes: Residents and Municipality Remain Indifferent

12:29, January 8, 2013

People have been dumping trash alongside the road to the village of Haghpat, in Lori Marz, for years.

The small river that runs through the dale is awash in garbage and no one seems to mind.

During the summer months, visitors to the memorial fountain in honor of former Haghpat resident Vazgen Matosyan have their picnics and then carelessly dump their trash wherever they please.

The fountain was built by Matosyan’s friends in 1990. The mountain-fed water is a cooling relief during the hot summer days.

They also built a small pavilion for the convenience of visitors.

Large metal trash bins, also installed by Matosyan’s friends, were empty when we visited the site yesterday.
