Residents of Kharadi are troubled due to the garbage burning incident which happened near Zensar in Kharadi.

Speaking to Pune Pulse, Harshal Ghadage, a resident of Kharadi said, “Garbage burning has become a continuous practice in Kharadi. CCTVs must be installed in several areas in Kharadi. Garbage is dumped by a lot of hoteliers at night time. It remains dumped for a long time which is eventually burned by someone. This has become a very normal exercise in Kharadi. So, the main thing is installing CCTVs to effectively monitor & take action on miscreants. A lot of air pollution gets created which is again harmful.””

Deepak Patil, Chairman, Kharadi Housing Welfare Association said, “Garbage is frequently burned there. I think the area is an amenity space of the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) nearby Zensar, where garbage is incessantly dumped & burned. The road is of everyday use where a lot of vehicles commute. There should be some surveillance in the area. The intensity of the garbage burning was so much that it was completely unbearable. The PMC has been informed about this. But there is no response from the PMC.”

Sushma Munde, Sanitary Inspector, PMC said, “The garbage burning incidents are not happening anymore in that area. So, there is no issue there now.”

Just like this, garbage burning incidents have increased a lot in Pune in recent times.

Earlier in March 2024, the long-standing problem of toxic smoke rising from burning trash in Kalyani Nagar was there, severely distressing the residents along South Avenue Road in the affluent neighbourhood –

Residents have said that the smoke and fumes rising from smouldering trash along the riverbank in the area and surrounding localities are causing serious air pollution, raising concerns for everyone who is in close proximity to the hazard.

More than 100 tickets were issued by Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) on Friday as a result of the numerous complaints that concerned citizens filed with the civic organization.
