Corpn. begins removal of accumulated garbage

The civic administration of Kochi marshalled 23 lorries on Wednesday to clear the refuse that had piled up on the streets following the delay in choosing the agencies for clearing the waste.

Though the district administration had offered to step in to get lorries for clearing the garbage, the corporation could manage the day with its own fleet of vehicles and the ones provided by the contractor. On the day, 84 loads of garbage were removed, claimed V.K. Minimol, Chairperson of the Health Standing Committee of the corporation. She said all the piled up waste would be cleared by Thursday.
