Garbage starts to accumulate on sidewalks as collect stopped in over 180 communes including the tenth, eigtheenth and nineteenth arrondissements in Paris.

Seven labour unions representing garbage collect and recycling workers have called for a strike, complaining about their work condition and salaries.

About 80 percent of the 1,700 employees of SITA Ile-de-France, a company who collects 15 percent of Paris' garbage, answered the call for a strike which started on Monday.
 
Labour union representatives did not say when the stike would end, saying it was "unlimited" in time.

Over 100 workers protested in France of the headquarters of the SITA on Monday and briefly entered the precise. Further protests are expected today.
