A dilapidated PWD quarters is the new proposed garbage dumping and segregation site at Baina. This has forced agitated residents to take up matter with the Mormugao Municipal Council.



A few years ago, after these PWD quarters were declared unsafe and all the occupants cleared from the quarters the building became a den for antisocial elements. Locals say that residents began driving petty criminals away and with the support of the police cleared the area.


But now this building is become a transit point for all the garbage before it is taken to the dumping site at Sada. They allege that sometimes the garbage remains for a week and the stench becomes unbearable.

 

MMC Ward Councilor Murari Bandekar said that he had also received a lot of complaints from the people and would soon take up the matter with MMC. He said that he had told garbage collectors not to use this site for garbage.
