Garbage clearance: Corporation moves in as Neel Metal is phased out

Chennai Corporation has finally decided to take a call on the garbage clearing operations by the private agency, Neel Metal Fanalca (NMF).

Following many complaints against NMF, the Corporation has stepped in and will take over the operations in ward no.142 under its control soon, Nithyananthan, supervisor of the Ward told Mylapore Times. The ward covers parts of Alwarpet and Abhiramapuram

New garbage bins (photo on left) , garbage collection lorries and tricycles which will be used in door -to-door collection of garbage have been purchased and will be put to use this week.

NMF continues to clear the garbage in the ward. But the Corporation workers have also started working alongside them. “This is a transition period and we will fully take charge from NMF gradually,” says Sampath, Assistant Commissioner of Zone 10.

  1. Dear All,

    The current company was selected after a long tendering process as the previous Onxy did not do their work. Now even this company is now phased out and we see corporaton moving back again. It reminds me of my school days whem corporation lorry used to come for garbage clerance. So in this whole lot of 10+ yrs what is lost is only public money and we are back to square one again.
    The failure of any work is primarily due to lack of enforcement and monitoring.
    Its a pity we still see the streets of one of the most prominent area mandaveli with garbage and rubbish all around.
    Thanks
