Garbage piles up in Erode

ERODE: At a time when the Centre and State governments insisting the local administrations to enhance the sanitary conditions, a municipality here has virtually stopped the garbage collection, leaving people to live under miserable conditions.

Heaps of rotten garbage are found in almost all the residential colonies coming under the Soorampatty Municipality here.

A large amount of garbage that has been dumped near the office of the municipality has been remaining in the same place for weeks together.

The municipal workers, instead of collecting the garbage, are setting the waste afire, causing huge damage to the environment, it was pointed out.

“Thick cloud of smoke engulfs the area making life miserable for us,” a shopkeeper said.
