Bhayandar: The final Ganesh immersion procession’s on Anant Chaturdashi generated an astronomical quantity of garbage amounting around 400 metric tonnes in just 12 hours. This quantity is the more than double the amount of garbage generated by the twin-city. The most litter affected areas were the approach roads leading to the major immersion points in the twin-city as hundreds of stalls had sprung up catering free cold-drinks, tea, vada-pav and other eatables to devotees. “The entire roads were littered with left-overs-mostly non-recyclable plastic glasses. It was virtually an herculean task for our personnel to clear the mess.” said, deputy municipal commissioner-Dr. Sambaji Panpatte.      —Our correspondent
