HASSAN: Garbage has piled up in Hassan city and this is the situation in almost all the localities. City Municipal Council (CMC) had kept containers in all the 35 wards to collect garbage. However, the collected garbage has not been cleared at regular intervals.

In Ravindra Nagar area, the CMC had kept a container which is overflowing with garbage now and the residents are throwing garbage on the road. The recent rains worsened the situation as some of the garbage has spread across the road. When residents go to CMC president Ratnamma Mahantesh with their complaints, she says that due to continued rains the CMC could not take any development works.
