Ganderbal, Jul 15: Heaps of garbage have been dumped along Baghwan Mohalla road in Safapora in Ganderbal.
Residents said that in the absence of bins, residents dump the waste on roads as dogs and cattle squatter upon the waste and feed on it.
A local resident said that in the absence of proper waste management, strong stench emanating from these big mounds of garbage has made the lives of residents and commuters miserable.
“The garbage mound is the main breeding ground for dogs and has health hazards,” said Manzoor Ahmad, a local resident.
The residents appealed to authorities for effective removal of the garbage and urged authorities to take immediate action against the people who dump the garbage on road sides.
