Colombo: A Sri Lankan court on Tuesday allowed authorities to dump 350 metric tonnes of rubbish per day at an alternate site after the catastrophic collapse of a garbage mound near Colombo killed 31 people and buried dozens of homes.  The Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) had sought a Colombo magistrate court’s intervention, seeking permission to dump garbage at an alternate site within the Colombo district.  The court permitted the CMC to dump 350 metric tons of rubbish per day.
