Residents of Indirapuram highlighted several civic amenities that the area lacks, especially the absence of a proper waste management plan, in an interaction organised by HT Media Limited in association with the Federation of Ghaziabad RWAs.
Due to inadequate garbage house and garbage bins, green belts and road dividers in the Trans-Hindon area are turning into dumping grounds. Residents of Indirapuram and Vaishali have complained about the problem many times, but in vain.
"The entire sector has turned into a dumping ground, thanks to the authority's negligence. Due to chocked sewers, dirty water enters the basement of houses, which can cause severe diseases," said BS Negi, a member of Sector 4 RWA, Vaishali.
Residents said due to the improper disposal of solid waste, stray animals on roads are a common sight.
Residents raised other issues such as pathetic condition of roads, traffic irregularity and contaminated drinking water supply, etc.
Residents have applauded the initiative launched by HT Media Ltd. HT has urged office-bearers of RWAs to persuade residents contribute old newspapers and books, which will be re-cycled to make newsprint and save millions of trees.
As part of the initiative, HT will buy papers directly from consumers and send them for recycling. With this campaign, HT is trying to spread awareness to create greener and cleaner city.
