Tvm: Garbage removal in city hit for seventh day

Tuesday, December 27, 2011: The garbage removal in the capital city has been disrupted for the seventh consecutive day with the Corporation’s decision to suspend trash pickup indefinitely.
Even though the corporation had assured steps to remove trash, uncollected garbage is piling up on almost all the streets in the city and the stench emanating from the waste has made life miserable for local people and passersby.
Rodents, mosquitoes, and flies thrive here. Garbage also lies accumulated in various parts of the town. The city dwellers opined that they fear an outbreak of contagious diseases like dengue fever, malaria etc.
Uncertainty is looming large over the garbage disposal in Thiruvananthapuram city with the Vilappilsala solid-waste treatment plant being shut down by the panchayat authorities.
With the residents of Vilappilsala kicking up a big stink over the garbage treatment plant and the city corporation deciding to stop collection of waste from flats, apartments and hotels, a major crisis regarding waste treatment is looming over the city.
