The garbage depot in Padegaon is posing a severe health hazard for the residents living in the nearby areas. Around 25,000 people in this area are facing problems due to the depot, the residents claimed. They have demanded the depot to be shifted elsewhere, or they have warned to launch a severe agitation against the Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar Municipal Corporation (CSMC).

The municipal corporation has established four garbage depots at Chikalthana, Harsul, Padegaon, and Kanchanwadi, where the garbage collected from the city is dumped.

"The residents of Bhavsinghpura, Pethenagar, Shavasti colony, Saketnagar, Bhimnagar, Jaitwan colony, Samrat Ashok colony, Lal Mati area, Padegaon, and University area are facing problems due to the garbage depot as it stinks. The smell is unbearable, especially in the early morning and evening."

"The depot is situated in the middle of the residential area. It is causing a serious health hazard to the residents. The situation is more drastic during the rainy season when the epidemic is spread due to the garbage."
