Foul smell and toxic environment continue to haunt industries and settlements close to the Turbhe dumping ground. Despite Anthony Waste Management being given the task of implementing the segregation of dry and wet garbage, the contractor is failing. Sudhir Sharma reports the consequences of this failure at the Turbhe dumping ground. Despite the guidelines of the Supreme Court for scientific disposal of garbage, the process of the NMMC is not even close to the guidelines. This is evident at the Turbhe dumping ground where foul stench and toxic gases are affecting the health and hygiene of the people. Ironically, the NMMC administration had boasted of putting into place a system of scientific disposal for city garbage that will encourage hoteliers to set up restaurants at the dumping ground site. Forget humans, even animals cannot stand to stay close to the area. It may be recalled that after the ghantagadi contractor’s attempts to begin scientific failure of garbage fell flat on its face, the NMMC recently awarded the contract to Anthony Waste Management but even the present contractor has not begun segregation of garbage while at the Turbhe Dumping Ground a system for scientific disposal is still not in place. With little accountability for the failed initiatives, Crores of public funds continue to go down the drain. With cameraperson Rajendra Prasad, Sudhir Sharma for NMTV News.
