GUNTUR: Residents and the general public use the open area near the transformer at Anandpet on Ponnur Road in the city to dump waste. A huge mound of waste lies next to the electrical transformer on the stretch. “This has raised fears among residents of a major mishap in the event of wet waste coming in contact with the transformer,” says S Mahalakshmi, a resident of Anandpet.
The residents have been demanding that the GMC officials arrange dumper bins to enable them throw waste. They have also urged the APSPDCL to build a fence around the transformer.Residents believe that a solution can only be reached when residents cooperate with authorities and learn the importance of home-to-home garbage collection and disposal scheme.
