Amsterdam garbage collectors will need 1 week

Now the strike of the garbage collectors has ended, they expect to need 1 week to catch up.

Garbage has been filling the streets of Amsterdam, after a 1 week strike that started last Monday.
Now that the strike is over, many people put their garbage outside, after having it kept inside their houses during the strike.

To lessen the smell the city will use special odorizers to make the smell go away. The substance is normally only used in certain alleys in the centre, where there is often a smell of urine.
