PMC not clearing garbage

Residents of a few housing societies in Dhankawdi claim that the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has not collected garbage from their area for the last ten days

When contacted, head of the civic solid waste management department, Suresh Jagtap, said the PMC has started issuing notices to housing societies that have come up after the year 2000 to segregate dry and wet waste and to compost the latter.
