Garbage and household wastes dumped regularly on the roadside at ADC Court area, Dimapur without proper bin has become a blotch to the landscape of the neighborhood. Residents of the area said earlier, garbage disposal trucks used to collect the wastes on a regular basis, however, the roadside has not been cleared for over a month and the wastes have been accumulating since then.
The unattended roadside dumping place appears to be developing rapidly into a breeding ground for insects like flies and mosquitoes, and a scavenging haven for dogs and other domestic animals.
The area, also called Industrial village Razhüphe (IVR), houses various significant offices of the district such as DC’s office, ADC Court, Commissioner of Excise, Taxes office, and Geology & Mining, besides other offices and educational institutions.
As per Nagaland Pollution Control Board (NPCB) reporting “…bins are too few in number and are not designed for efficient waste collection.” in its recent assessment of municipal solid waste management in Dimapur, public speculation only deepens. This situation is a wake up-call for responsible authorities like Dimapur Municipal Council (DMC) or local authorities to initiate serious awareness drive on sanitation issues.
