All the 10 Garbage contractors who are engaged in lifting the garbage from 48 of the 58 wards in the city will not lift the garbage from Thursday June 1 as they say they cannot work with the current remuneration paid to them.
About 300 tons of garbage is produced in the city and is transferred to the landfill site. But now the garbage contractors who is advance had written to the corporation that they will stop their work from June 1 if the remuneration is not hiked.
The corporation is now unprepared and if from tomorrow the garbage is not lifted it could create a hazardous situation as the rains have also started. This will also include the door to door collection.
The contracts of all the 10 contractors had expired but as no new contractor was ready to take up the work, the same contractors were awarded the contract again. But now that all the 10 contractors together have decided that they wont lift he garbage until the remuneration is hiked.
