The citizens adopted a novel way to create awareness among the people about air pollution due to non-disposal of waste materials. They prepared a black ball with a diameter of 12 feet near dumping ground at Bhandewadi mentioning about ill-effects on the health.
The Centre for Sustainable Development (CFSD) had conducted a survey recently which revealed that 78 per cent citizens are not satisfied about disposing of the waste materials process.
The garbage collectors and members of the organisation held placards in their hands giving message on clean air, safe living to draw attention of the people. They demanded that NMC should adopt an effective way for disposal of waste materials.
Leena Buddhe, Director of CFSD, said that the health level would deteriorate due to increasing pollution. The NMC should adopt a method that would result in effective disposal of garbage, she wanted.
