This is a vacant plot opposite my house on Sixth Main Road, Ram Nagar, Madipakkam. This is being used as a dumping yard by some of my neighbours. This is despite a civic exnora tricycle coming to collect garbage every day from all houses in our area.
We discussed this during a meeting with our area councillor, who said that notices have been issued to plot owners to take care of this. But, nothing has happened so far.
The initiative by The Hindu is just amazing for the reason that it presents the problem and solution on the same page. Congratulations to everyone taking part in this, including FB followers.
