With Uruli Devachi villagers adamant on not allowing garbage vehicles to deposit waste at the processing plant before the piled-up waste is processed, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) administration is struggling to dispose of waste generated in the city.

Mayor Chanchala Kodre along with Municipal Commissioner Vikas Deshmukh and other civic officers met the villagers on Wednesday, but could not convince them.

Villagers said the piled-up waste at the facility was polluting the environment of the village. The villagers had not allowed garbage vehicles to deposit waste at the plant on Monday and had sent them back.

With the processing plant at Uruli Devachi not working to full capacity, the civic administration has been forced to pile-up waste outside the plant.

Meanwhile, garbage bins in the city are overflowing and the situation is likely to worsen in the days to come.
