With large expanses of vacant grounds which have been turned into dumping yards, both Sectors 70 and 71 have been neglected by the civic body.

At several spots in these sectors, which fall in the outskirts of the city, construction debris has been dumped.

These sectors have not been fully developed and as a result have many vacant and green spaces which have become dumping yards. Both domestic waste and malba are dumped here. Also, there are no dustbins around. The lack of a proper disposal mechanism also aggravates the problem. Residents complain that sanitation workers do not collect garbage regularly.

Stray cattle grazing in these large swathes of land and parks leave behind dung which adds to the unclean environment.
