The Mormugao Municipal Council (MMC) of Vasco city, Goa has decided to take strict action against anyone who refuses to give garbage to sanitation workers.

There are also plans to withdraw  no-objection certificates for power and water connections for repeated offenders.

“During a meeting, it was brought to my notice that residents of many colonies are refusing to give garbage to collection staff. Now the question is why this attitude and more importantly, how do they plan to dispose off the garbage,”said MMC chief officer Agnelo Fernandes.

There is a minimal fee of Rs 40 for door-to-door garbage collection, but some residents prefer to burn the waste instead of giving it to sanitation workers. This leads to pollution and the corporation wants to check such malpractises.
