Welcome to Mullah Colony, life stinks here 22.5.2016 Deccan Herald - New Delhi
Driving on NH-24 towards Indirapuram from Delhi, it's hard to miss this mountain of garbage - on your right where the road sign reads 'Ghazipur murga mandi'. An attempt to go near the 40-metre high pile-up, spreading across 70 acres is a struggle in itself. First the stench from the chicken and fish markets on the way hits you. Once past the meat markets, the air is still foul. Over 2,000 tonnes of garbage is dumped at nearby landfill site. The mega-garbage dump takes in about a quarter of the garbage the city produces - and has an important role in overall waste management in Delhi. But for the thousands living for decades near the `khatta' - as they call the landfill - is a huge problem. Something they have to face every moment of their lives. Around 100 metres from the landfill, Mullah Colony is the residential locality situated nearest to it. In a locality of around 10,000 people who live in pucca houses, the "khatta" is an omnipresent entity affecting their life in multiple ways. "You are lucky ...

Mountains of city garbage 22.5.2016 Deccan Herald - New Delhi
Much of Delhi's solid waste gets dumped at 3 landfill sites, unsightly mounds of garbage which are getting higher by the day and posing health hazards. The city needs better ways to deal with the garbage it produces Delhi desperately needs more land to dump its ever increasing gar-bage. The 3 existing landfills reached their saturation points long ago. Still, around 8,500 metric tonnes of solid waste is being dumped daily at these sites, making it a recipe for disaster. Residents living in the vicinity of the 3 landfill sites at Bhalswa, Ghazipur and Okhla face serious health hazards due to the mountain of garbage pilling up at these dumps. But the multiplicity of agencies in Delhi has proved to be the biggest hindrance in providing land to the municipalities for alternative dumping sites. The Aam Aadmi Party government says that these 3 landfill sites have been running without the authorisation of the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC). The municipal corporations, however, say that they have no ...

Uncleared garbage may worsen health woes during rains 19.5.2016 deccanherald.com
Ahead of the monsoon, heaps of garbage which lay uncleared in various areas and stench emanating from them has worried Bengalureans of a possible epidemic once it rains. Leachate oozing from garbage piles, all pervading stench and spread of diseases are a few things Jai Kumar, a resident of Basavanagar dreads this monsoon. The reason is the piled up garbage at BEML Road-Basavanagar stretch. "The garbage collection is irregular. I do not know what will happen if case of a heavy downpour and the Palike does not take immediate measures," he remarked. Harilakshmi theatre near Wilson Garden that has turned into a dumpyard and a breeding ground for mosquitoes is another place that is giving sleepless nights to local residents. Mahesh T S of Hemmigepura said that since Pourakarmikas do not visit his area for lifting the waste from households, some residents are dumping garbage at vacant plots. The stench becomes inevitable whenever it rains. "Along with the stench, the leachate flows onto roadside drains and ...
