Overflowing garbage

The city’s dump yards, at Perungudi and Kodungaiyur, have started to overflow and the Corporation still has no firm plan to tackle this problem. Chennai generates 5000 tonnes of waste per day. Compared to the other metros, Chennaites lack the awareness of segregating waste before disposal. Though segregation was attempted before, it proved futile. The Corporation uses outdated techniques like land filling and burning to dispose garbage, which is harmful to the environment. It pollutes the land and the stench generated from these open dump yards add to health issues in surrounding areas. Bengaluru has awakened to this need and is trying to rope in Super Star Rajnikanth to promote awareness on waste segregation and management. Clean and green Chennai has been the motto of changing governments and it is time the motto is brought into action.
