After facing repeated criticism from both the residents and the National Green Tribunal (NGT), the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has finally woken up to the problem of garbage disposal in Indirapuram.

It has come to light that there is a landfill site near the Kanawani sewage treatment plant (STP), which is to be upgraded soon. Also, GDA has done a survey of the garbage generated in Indirapuram.

GDA has drawn up an elaborate plan to manage civic waste in the city, which includes garbage collection spots and provisions to impose steep fines on private agencies entrusted with the responsibility of disposing of garbage.

The Authority has prepared a detailed report on garbage management in the township, after the NGT rapped GDA, Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation (GMC) and the district magistrate over poor waste management in the city.
