2022 Aug 31, 20:51, kathmandu

The work on the final management of the entire waste dumped at Teku station over the last four months will be over in the coming two days, the Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) said.

The solid waste collected from the Kathmandu Valley had been temporarily managed at Teku for the last four months after the locals of Sisdol and Bancharedanda obstructed transporting the waste to these landfill sites. They obstructed the waste management, citing the works on repairing the local roads were not carried out in time and their demands for providing health facilities, education, and employment to the locals were not met in line with the agreement the KMC signed with them in the past.

The locals obstructed waste management sometimes vandalizing the trucks carrying the waste and sometimes blocking the road in protest.

The waste that had been piling up on the roadside and streets in the Valley started to be collected and carried to the landfill sites at Sisdol and Bancharedanda after a four-point agreement was reached in the third week of this month with the locals.

KMC Environment Department chief Sarita Rai said, "The final management of the waste dumped at the transfer station at Teku would be done in the next two days."

The waste at Teku transfer station had not been managed since April 25.
