Garbage Dumping

The municipal corporation has not yet resolved the issues faced by residents due to the dumping of garbage on vacant plots in the city. Despite making bold promises, the municipal corporation has failed to take effective action against this problem. Initially, there were grand declarations that if garbage was dumped on vacant plots, stringent measures would be taken against the plot owners. The Municipal Corporation even pledged to install ownership boards after completing the cleanup in the affected areas.

However, in practice, these promises have not been fulfilled, leaving neighbors in distress. The municipal corporation's inability to address the problem has resulted in ongoing challenges for the residents affected by the indiscriminate dumping of garbage on vacant plots. It remains to be seen when a practical solution will be implemented to alleviate this persistent issue.

The Municipal Corporation has failed to issue notices to owners of vacant plots for installing boards. Consequently, residents in numerous areas continue to endure foul odors and waterborne diseases stemming from these empty plots. In various parts of the city, vacant plots have remained unused for years, creating entire neighborhoods with two to three persistently vacant plots that residents are using as dumping grounds.

Due to the absence of regular cleaning, these plots have become dumping sites for accumulated waste. The entire locality is grappling with the repercussions of the unattended wet garbage, making it challenging for neighbors to maintain a healthy living environment. Despite these ongoing challenges, the Municipal Corporation has taken no action to address the problem. As a result, residents continue to face difficulties associated with these neglected vacant plots.

These were to be implemented

  • As of today, there has been no issuance of a toll-free number for filing complaints related to the smart city's activities.
  • Several tasks assigned to the RUIDP remain unfinished, and no action has been taken on tasks that lack quality.
  • Currently, numerous shop owners continue to dispose of garbage on the streets during the night, and no restrictions have been imposed on them till now.
  • Despite the intention to deploy security guards to mark various places turned into garbage dumps, it has not been implemented yet.

UT NOTE: Preventing the dumping of waste on vacant plots involves a combination of regulatory measures, community engagement and public awareness campaigns. Impose fines and penalties for those caught illegally dumping waste. Increase patrolling and surveillance of vacant plots, especially in areas prone to dumping. Ensure that there are sufficient waste disposal facilities and recycling centers in the community. Make it convenient for residents to dispose of their waste properly, reducing the incentive to dump on vacant plots. Conduct regular inspections of vacant plots to identify and address potential dumping sites promptly. Introduce reward systems for individuals or communities that actively prevent illegal dumping and maintain the cleanliness of vacant plots.
