It is our responsibility

We all know that the Vellalore garbage yard is a big issue to the residents.

 There was a story behind the shifting of dumpyard from Kavundampalayam to here.

You may read the story here at: http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Coimbatore/why-coimbatore-corporation-moved-dump-yard-to-vellalore/article5111451.ece


The biggest issue is that the garbage has mixed waste of both degradable wastes like food and papers along with the non-degradable plastic. This made it impossible to process into manure or to pull out recyclables.


While it is on one side, the other end of Vellalore (Pattanam road) looks like it is being turned into dumpyard for medical wastes from small hospitals and medical clinics.

And there are some other issues too. There are couple of plastic companies and courier services located here. They seem to just throw away the plastic polyethylene bags away. It flies in the air and covers the land and when it gets swallowed by poor cattle, (you know what will happen then.)
The below photo was taken near Bluedart godown near pattanam road - Salem ByePass Junction.

Don't you feel responsible. Urge the respective panchayats (Vellalore and Pattanam) to take action.
Then we can shift to bigger problems like moving away the Dump yard.
