NOIDA: As the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) kicked in on Sunday, residents of Sector Alpha 2 complained of untended construction and demolition (C&D) waste across different parts. They also claimed that unsegregated waste is collected and dumped for days, leading to a health hazard.

“A meeting of all RWAs of Greater Noida was called by GNIDA ACEO on July 10 to discuss the efficiency of the garbage collection company as well as the process of collecting C&D waste.

In the latter, it was discussed that the individual house owners will bring the C&D waste to the collection point rather than the Authority picking it up from their door. However, it has been more than two months, and the work of the garbage collection company has gone from bad to worse. The entire sector is now looking like a garbage den,” said Sanjeev Salwan, an RWA member of Alpha 2.

He added that since door-to-door waste collection is not being done on time, garbage is lying across the sector. “The grilles and trees in front of houses or NPCL panels installed in the streets have become centres of dumped garbage bags,’’ Salwan stated. Residents also claimed that dry and wet waste is not being segregated.

‘‘The awareness drives on dry and wet waste segregation or dumping of C&D waste have born no fruit as none of that is being followed,’’ the RWA member told TOI . Jitendra Mavi from the RWA team said the condition of the sector has become pathetic, with garbage lying all around.

‘‘Due to the unclean environment, residents are living in fear of dengue, malaria, and other diseases,’’ he added, urging officials to conduct a surprise inspection of the sector. When pointed out, GNIDA officials assured that they would address the issue.
