Telangana: Archaic fort turns into dumping yard 27.6.2017
Hyderabad: A fort that was once seized by Krishnadevaraya in Tangeda, Gurjala, in Guntur district, is just a garbage dumping site. The fort was a significant part of several kingdoms. Archaeologist E Sivanagi Reddy, chief executive officer of The Cultural Centre for Vijayawada and Amaravati, "Tangeda known as Tangeda Sthala in historic inscriptions was an administrative military, business and religious centre. It was a stronghold of the Kakatiya, Reddy, Gajapati and Vijayanagara kingdoms.There are seven inscriptions from the 14th and 15th centuries that record Tangeda as an administrative headquarters and market place." Many inscriptions say that the fort was seized by Krishnadevaraya during his eastern campaign launched in 1516 AD, along with those at Kondaveedu, Kondapalli, Bellamkonda Kethavaram and Nagarjuni Konda "It is painful to see the fort wall in a dilapidated condition and the villagers using the place as a  dumping yard. The same is the case with the Siva temple which ...

Tribune News Service Amritsar June 26 After being used as a dumping ground by residents, the proposed multipurpose sports complex has now turned into a parking lot. A number of vehicles can be seen parked inside the complex. The foundation stone of the complex was laid in 2011 at Ranjit Avenue. The stadium is destined to provide world–class sports infrastructure to the players in the city.

Dumping ground now a beautiful park 27.6.2017 The Tribune
Shriniwas Joshi I HAD a chance of going to Kanlog where a few yards ahead of the crematorium on the Dhalli-ISBT road, I saw a beautiful park coming up (See photo). The Deodar forest making the background of the park gives comfort to the eyes. Its undulating surface has been kept as such and that goes with the nearby hills moving up and down gently. Can you believe it? A few months back, the area was the dumping ground of the waste and every passerby used to keep a hanky on his nose to avoid the stink emanating from the dumped material. Today, it is a park on the ground reclaimed from the landfill site and visited cheerfully by many. Immediately the proverb, “What is one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” flashed upon my mind. The Chief Minister laid the foundation stone of the park on May 1, 2017, and named it Shimla Nature Park Kanlog. And in less than two months, a portion of the park was casting shadows of coming events. The green grass was spread, pansy or viola was in full bloom and saplings of ...

Now, animal carcass too can be recycled 26.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The BBMP is planning to set up four animal waste processing units in the city. With the production of 120-150 tonnes of animal waste every day, the waste is often dumped in open fields, which results in clogging of drains and attracts stray animals. Sarfaraz Khan, joint commissioner, solid waste management, BBMP, said, "The Palike has already allotted Rs 2 crore for two incineration plants. Tenders are being called for two rendering units." Incineration and rendering of waste are two common methods of disposing it. Animal waste can be hazardous if it is not disposed of properly. The rendering unit has more challenges as the waste collected here has to be converted into useful derivables. Products such as protein powder for canines and feed for aquatic animals will be derived in the rendering unit. The fresh carcass can be converted into food for fish and other animals and the dry carcass can be converted into bio-fertilisers. "It is not difficult to dispose of carcasses of larger animals as they can ...

Sri Lanka blames garbage pile-up for record dengue toll 26.6.2017 The Tribune
Colombo, June 26 Sri Lanka has suffered a record 200 deaths from dengue fever this year, the health minister said on Monday, blaming a garbage disposal crisis in Colombo. Rotting garbage has been piling up in many parts of the capital since the country’s main rubbish tip collapsed in April, crushing dozens of homes and killing 32 people. With nowhere to take the trash, municipal collection has drastically slowed and led to huge piles on the streets which authorities say are encouraging mosquito-breeding. “The situation could get worse if we don’t tackle the garbage problem quickly,” Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne told AFP as official figures showed 210 people had died from dengue so far this year—well over double the figure for the whole of 2016. “It is not something my ministry can do alone but we need a collective effort.” The number of infected people in the first six months of this year was nearly 70,000 compared to about 55,000 cases for the whole of last year, official figures showed. Military ...
