The residents of Sector-15 have complained to the Grievance Redressal wing of the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram’s (MCG) sanitation wing citing inconsistent garbage collection in the last one month by the concessionaire for waste management Ecogreen Energy.
The residents have also written to the chief minister over the irregularity in garbage pick up.
Ramesh Vashisht, president, residents’ welfare association (RWA), Sector 15, said, “We have mentioned in the letter to the grievance redressal wing of the MCG that the staffs of Ecogreen Energy rarely turn up for garbage collection.”
“As a result, the nearby roads have become full of garbage. Garbage has been coming out from dustbins as well. The environment around the society has become polluted,” he added.
On the other hand, the officials of Ecogreen Energy denied the allegations. They said that they regularly pick up the garbage from the area.
“There is no designated waste dump there. We have not received any complaint from the area as yet. Should we receive a complaint, the matter will be resolved,” Ankit Aggarwal, CEO, Ecogreen Energy, said.
The RWA president requested for timely redressal of the issue in the letter to the MCG’s sanitation wing.
“Earlier, we used to pay ragpickers to collect waste from our society. I feel we should return to our old ways. Many retired IAS officers, bureaucrats and politicians reside here and it’s a shame that we have to go through this,” BS Yadav, a resident, said.
“The issue has been brought to our notice and we will take prompt action,” Yashpal Yadav, MCG commissioner, said.
Another resident, Ranjit Singh Yadav, said that they always get nauseating stench from the piled garbage outside the society. He said that they are also under threat of diseases with the kind of litter that has been outside their houses.
