Wadgaonsheri Residents Seek Permanent Solution Over Garbage Menace 

Share This News

Residents of Wadgaonsheri, Pune are seeking permanent solution over increasing garbage menace which is caused due to negligence of the civic body. 

The residents complained that this matter pertains to the continuous and unchecked dumping of trash on the footpaths in front of our societies, precisely where a signage prominently reads “Swachh Bharat, Keep it Clean.” Regrettably, the reality on the ground starkly contradicts this noble sentiment.

One would assume that a sign bearing the message of cleanliness would serve as a reminder to residents and visitors alike, and that the PMC staff would diligently clean up any litter. 

However, the reality is quite different, as the trash has been allowed to accumulate for an unacceptably long time. In addition to dumped garbage, cement items are also left haphazardly on the footpaths, further obstructing pedestrian access.

For an extended period now, the footpaths in our neighborhood have been plagued by a growing mound of trash that not only defies the very essence of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan but also raises questions about the efficiency and effectiveness of the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) staff in maintaining our public spaces. It is inconceivable that despite the PMC staff’s supposed daily cleaning schedule, this trash has remained unaddressed and is deteriorating further each day.

This situation presents several disadvantages and concerns for our community:

Unsightly Appearance: The unsightly heap of trash severely impacts the aesthetics of our neighborhood, undermining the visual appeal of the area.

Health Hazards: Unhygienic Conditions: The accumulation of trash on footpaths leads to the breeding of disease-carrying pests such as mosquitoes, rats, and stray animals. This poses a severe health risk to the residents, especially children and the elderly.

Pedestrian Discomfort: Residents, including senior citizens and children, are inconvenienced and forced to navigate around the trash while using the footpaths.

Environmental Impact: The presence of trash on footpaths undermines efforts to maintain a clean and green environment, harming the local ecosystem.

Public Awareness: The situation contradicts the “Swachh Bharat” message and erodes public trust in municipal authorities’ commitment to cleanliness.
