Haiti is one of the most polluted places in the world. Many coastal cities like Port-au-Prince are prone to mounds of trash that pile up in the street and waterways. It’s so polluted that trash is used as a walkway to cross waterways. Because it’s a hurricane hotspot, tons of waste pile up and contaminate the beaches after major storms.
The most vulnerable time for the country is September through December when the most storms hit the country and cause the most problems. Unfortunately, the government has not given the trash problem enough attention, and in turn, they’re suffering (NCR Online).
