THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Corporation Council on Wednesday unanimously passed a resolution urging the State Government to take necessary steps to facilitate the reopening of the waste treatment plant in the wake of the Supreme Court order the other day.
The apex court had ordered the reopening of the garbage plant according to the conditions laid down by the High Court. The Corporation resolved to operate the plant in full compliance with the High Court directives. The Council observed that the city has been heading towards a dangerous situation ever since the plant was closed. The Corporation didn’t get necessary support from the state police to transport garbage to the plant after the High Court order.
The processing of the accumulated waste at the plant has reached the final stage. The sanitary landfilling and works of the leachate treatment plant have been almost completed, the resolution said.
