The Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) has formed a five-member team of officials and residents to monitor waste operations at defunct material recovery facilities (MRFs) at Ullawas village in Sector 61.
MCG officials said they will begin the process of decentralizing waste management with the support of residents.
Residents of Ullawas had protested against the recently opened MRFs managed by the MCG and its concessionaire Ecogreen Energy in November and December, alleging that the plant was built without their consent. The MRF had been closed since then.
According to MCG joint commissioner Naresh Kumar, they decided to hold a meeting with residents in December but the villagers were not convinced so they met again this month, reports Hindustan Times.
