Queen of Hills, losing its beauty due to poor waste management
Shimla has been all time favorite of tourists, especially in summers, but City’s waste management seems to have failed in preserving the beauty of Shimla. These photographs are taken near Lift, Cart Road Shimla and they speak for themselves and the mess created due to bad waste management. It’ll not be enough to blame only MC as the citizens are equally responsible for disposing the garbage in a an inappropriate manner.
Are these vehicles supposed to dump the garbage in such a manner? Is it the right place? As we mentioned earlier, it’s not about some particular place and all over Shimla garbage is disposed wherever these workers and vehicles consider appropriate. Unfortunately, the door to door approach to collect the garbage has failed to manage waste disposal in Shimla City. Workers collect garbage from homes and either burn it or throw anywhere they think no one is watching them. Every house owner contributes some amount for the door to door garbage collection service. However, it’s a great failure on the name of a progressive policy.
It’s our request to public and MC Shimla that please help preserve the beauty of Queen of Hills and do use dustbins and garbage containers to dispose of the garbage. Further, if you have witnessed similar issues anywhere in Shimla or Himachal, write to us. We are expecting the involvement of public in our quest to make Himachal a better place and preserve its beauty.
