Noida: The residents of Amrapali Zodiac, a residential society in Sector 120, Noida on Sunday dumped garbage on a road outside the society. They did it to protest against non-collection of garbage from society in the last three days.
As per the residents, the garbage was dumped on the road to keep their houses clean. The agency which collects the garbage from Amrapali Zodiac is AG Enviro Infra Projects Pvt Ltd.
President of Amrapali Zodiac Social Welfare Association (AZSPA) Joginder Singh said, “The garbage was dumped at the road because it was not picked by the company. They are blackmailing us by demanding hiked rates. There is a 98 per cent rise in rates which is not justified. We can't accept the loot and don't accept the new rate. They had also sent the bill for seven months with increased rate on July 23.”
Singh also alleged that new rates were not communicated to them officially. He said that the agency officials had just communicated verbally.
CitySpidey also talked with the Assistant General Manager of AG Enviro Infra Projects Ltd Anuj Bhati, he said, “We are just following the orders of Noida Authority. They have officially sent us a letter to increase the rates. We never said that we will not lift the garbage. We have lifted the garbage now. We have also informed the residents to talk to Noida Authority for increased rate. Until then, we are ready to accept the past rates. We will continue to lift the garbage from the society.”
