Thane locals irked over Thane Municipal Corporation decision on waste collection

With just two days left for the Thane Municipal Corporation’s (TMC) ghanta gadis to stop collecting waste, the Thane housing societies are in a catch-22 situation. The residents have been asked to manage their own wet and dry waste. While some of the big housing complexes have their own bio-compost to manage wet garbage, they complain that the agency appointed by the TMC will charge them for transporting their dry waste.

“While our builder has built a plant to manage wet waste, we are trying find out a way to handle our dry waste,” says Sushant Kumar from Flora co-operative housing society, Hiranandani estate, Thane west.
