Margao: Even as the Margao Municipality heaved a sigh of relief over the Sonsodo imbroglio with the civic body sending the daily wet waste to the Saligao and Cacora waste treatment plants, the MMC is now grappling with the mini-waste dump taking shape near the KTC bus stand.
Sources said the open dumping of waste near the KTC bus stand on the GSUDA-acquired land echoed in the High Court when the garbage issue came up for hearing in the Court on Monday.
No official permission from authorities
MMC officials in private said there’s no official permission from any of the authorities for the disposal of the waste, including garden waste and silt generated by the drainage works.
“We keep our fingers crossed how the High Court will deal with the issue. The High Court attention has been drawn to the waste dumping near the KTC bus stand when the matter came up for hearing on Monday,” informed an official.
Waste dumping by the MMC near the KTC bus stand has not posed nuisance and health hazard to the neighbouring residents, but the site has been a scene of recurring fires and smoke over the last several months.
