The garbage dump yard in Turmuri where 160 tonnes per day of Municipal Solid Waste is dumped is to be relocated to Navage near Macche after the residents of Turmuri had protested against the hazards they were facing due to the waste.
The residents of the area including people from Navage, Santi Bastwad, Karle came together and protested against the establishment of a dumping ground near their village as they fear their fate would also be the same as the residents of Turmuri and they also would have to face many health and other issues.
A resolution has been passed six months ago by the corporation for the shifting of the dumping ground but as the local residents oppose the corporation is in a dizzy.
The corporation commissioner told that Navage will not have a dumping ground but will have the pyrolysis plant (thermo-chemical decomposition of organic material) which will also produce power. He further said nothing has been finalized as yet.
