Preparing to show the exit to the company that does the garbage removal work

listen to the news

The municipal administration is preparing to show the exit to the company that manages the recycling and solid waste management plant located in Sheeshambada. After announcing the stoppage of work from September 1, the Municipal Corporation sent a letter inviting the company for talks, but the response has not yet arrived. In this situation, it is believed that if the company is not ready to work under the terms of the Municipal Corporation, its option can be explored.
Five companies in the city are doing the garbage collection and disposal tasks. Ramki operates the waste disposal plant. Whereas, Chennai MSW, M/s Sunlight and M/s Bhargava collect the garbage in 98 wards. Ramky and Chennai MSW Company, which has been handling garbage collection in the city since 2018 and door-to-door garbage collection since 2019, have given notice to stop work from on September 1. In this regard, notices have also been pasted at the Sheeshambara plant and the garbage transfer station located at Haridwar Bypass. The notice also warned of cancellation of appointments of around 500 employees working in the two companies.
Both companies have explained the operation of the corporation due to absence from work and non-payment of time. In response to this, the Municipal Corporation has issued a notice and summoned the company for talks, but so far the company has not agreed to the talks. Faced with this situation, the Municipal Corporation has also taken a strict stance. Officials say efforts are being made to resolve the matter through talks, but if the company stands its ground and does not improve the work as per the conditions, the municipal corporation may start the process of retendering as to alternative solution. Its preparation is also said to have started.
The root of the dispute between the Municipal Corporation and the companies
Efforts were made to set up a waste disposal plant in Dehradun from 2008 onwards, but it took many years from finding the land to getting the NOC. Work on the plant could begin in 2018. When the plant was started on eight and a quarter acres in Sheeshambada, it was claimed that there would be no waste disposal problem for years. It was also claimed that it would be one of the few plants in the country that would be completely covered. The plant won’t stink, but it wasn’t completely covered and the smell couldn’t be stopped. The situation is that the villagers have created a ruckus here many times and have even complained of getting sick from the bad smell. Apart from that, the plant’s mountain of garbage has caught fire twice. When the fire broke out in April, not even firefighters could put it out. For several days the garbage was on fire. After that, the corporation started monitoring the plant and started imposing fines along with stopping payment for negligence. After that, the company gave a notice to leave the work.
These are the main complaints of the Municipal Corporation
According to the corporation’s administration, the company’s list of negligence is long. Garbage is not disposed of properly. The landfill created for residual waste after its disposal has been filled within a few years. The reason for this is to dump the garbage in the same landfill. Many types of complaints come from dirty water coming out of the chamber. Here there is manure generated during waste disposal and RDF, i.e. rejected dry fuel. The company has failed in its correct disposition.
98 lakh is paid every month
The municipal corporation pays the company around Rs 98 lakh every month. Due to the inadequate disposal of waste at the plant, the problem of where to dump the waste in the future has been raised. In this situation, the municipal administration does not want to show any generosity to the company.
Actions have been taken to stop payment and fines in the face of continued complaints about the company’s work. The company failed to properly dispose of the trash. The company has notified the stoppage of works from September 1. Faced with this, the corporation has also been summoned to talks by notifying the company, but no response has been received at the moment. You will not compromise the cleanliness of the city. Arrangements have been made to make alternative arrangements.
