Due to road maintenance, garbage has started piling up in the streets of Kathmandu.

Since the repair work of the road from Sisdol to Bancharedanda has not been completed, garbage has started piling up in the main square of Kathmandu. Garbage has started piling up mainly in Anamnagar, Kalanki, Kalimati, Balkhu and other places.

On Ashar 4th, the Kathmandu Metropolitan City issued a public notice and requested not to remove garbage outside the house for a week because of road maintenance work. KMC spokesperson Naveen Manandhar informed that there is a problem in waste management as it is difficult for all vehicles to drive after the road repair work has not been completed even within a week. He said that it will be difficult to manage the waste of all places because it will take more time to complete the repair work of the said road.

Similarly, the residents of Bancharedanda have warned that they will not allow waste management from the 1st of Bhadra, saying that the work is not done according to the agreement. The local residents have warned that they will not allow the garbage to be managed, saying that the road repair work was not done on time, there was no provision of containers for garbage in the garbage carrying vehicle (leached tank), health insurance of the locals, guarantee of education were ignored.

KMC said that the demands of the residents of Bancharedanda are at the stage of being addressed and informed that they are working on identifying the location to manage the rotting waste in the valley. For that, it is said that land identification is being done in collaboration with other municipalities of the valley.

Before this, 1,200 metric tons of waste from the valley was being managed in Sisdol every day. At most, 500 metric tons of garbage is released in KMC. About 75 percent of the waste emitted daily from the valley was being managed at that location.
