THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The State Government should bow to public opinion in the Vilappil panchayat in taking a decision on the garbage treatment plant at Vilappilsala, International Human Rights Association co-ordinator Attukal Surendran said.

 The Lokayukta’s recent order which calls for status quo on the Vilappilsala issue will only serve to complicate the issue, Surendran said in a statement here. Neither the City Corporation nor the State Government can ignore the opinion of the people of the Vilappil panchayat on this particular issue.This being the case, the Government should take steps to dispose of waste generated in the Corporation area within the Corporation limits and wastes from the panchayats on the panchayat premises. This alone will provide a solution to the vexed garbage issue, he said.

 The Independent Thinkers’ and Writers’ Forum, Thiruvananthapuram, has demanded that the Government should take urgent steps to address the garbage disposal problem faced by the  city.Forum chairman D C Wilson called for facilities to destroy waste at source. Incinerators should be made use of for disposing of waste from meat and fish shops. There should be at least one incinerator for every five wards, he said.

 The possibility of grinding and mixing plastic wastes to tar and using the mixture for road construction should be explored, the forum has said. Glass wastes should be recycled.

 Steps should also be taken for disposing of organic wastes collected from the homes of people living on less that four cents of land, on government land.
