The recent cyclonic weather laid low many a avenue tree and caused immense damage to trees and plants in public spaces and private properties in the Mylapore zone.
Chennai Corporation and Urbaser Sumeet staff were quick to clear the tonnes of green waste on roads and streets.
The waste was dumped in playgrounds and GCC chose to dump it in its own ground on St Mary’s Road.
Local youth who play here say they hope GCC will clear the green waste quickly.
This is the ground made famous by the Tamil film Chennai 6000028.
