Sanitation workers held a protest outside the Municipal Corporation office in Sector 68 on Friday against the ongoing garbage disposal crisis plaguing the city. They accused and protested against the authorities of politicising the issue and harassing residents, the workers dumped garbage in front of the office while raising slogans against the Punjab government, mayor and municipal commissioner. Mohan Singh, state vice-president of the Sanitation Workers’ Union, said, “Politics is being played over Mohali’s garbage issue. The MLA and the mayor are from different parties, and the residents of Mohali are suffering as a result of their political conflict.” He added, “Sanitation workers are segregating up to 85% of the waste at Resource Management Centres (RMCs). Of the total 200 tonnes of daily waste, 50% is wet waste, and 25% consists of cardboard, bottles and similar items, which sanitation workers manage themselves. The remaining 25%, including diapers, plastic bags and wraps, is around 10-15 tonnes daily. Despite this, the authorities lack infrastructure and mechanism to manage this waste effectively.”
