Striking waste collectors resume work in Chandigarh, RWAs want charge of garbage collection

Sunday, 24 January 2021

Taking note of the harassment caused to residents due to the strike running into multiple days, the Federation of Sector Welfare Associations Chandigarh (FOSWAC) also called an emergency meeting, where it was sought that waste collection be left to the Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs).




The municipal corporation last month took over door-to-door garbage collection in Sectors 1 to 30, which did not go down well with the informal cart-based collectors. To lodge their dissent against the move, they stopped picking up garbage from houses in areas beyond Sector 30, causing refuse to pile up at homes and on streets.




After MC officials yielded to some of their demands after a meeting on Friday, the garbage collectors decided to return to work.
