Lerie Panchayat Kohima (LPK) has banned dumping of garbage except those segregated bio-degradable waste at SIPMIU Solid Waste Management Facilities and Recycling Plant at Lerie colony till the plant becomes operational. 

In this regard, the LPK has appealed to all concerned Panchayats and Wards Sanitation Committees under the jurisdiction of Kohima Municipal Council (KMC) to refrain from sending their vehicles carrying garbage for dumping except those segregated bio-degradable waste. 

This was informed in a press statement by LPK chairman, Dr. Ilang and secretary, I. Tongpanglong. 

Lerie Panchayat Kohima pointed out that after the termination of contract period of the management of the plant M/s Ramky Group, Hyderabad, the management of the plant was taken over by KMC but has been lying redundant as a result the entire plant area has become unhygienic causing inconvenience to the resident of the colony, especially those persons/family residing in the vicinity of the plant.

It also pointed out that some person(s)/party(ies) were randomly dumping earth (soil) and other construction debris on the side of the road, leading to the Justice & Law department quarters and Solid Waste Management Facilities & Recycling re-cycling plant at Lerie, which resulted in narrowing down the passage of the road and has endangered the lives of the commuters. 

Therefore, LPK cautioned the person(s)/party(ies) concerned to immediately stop the unhealthy practice, and at the same time urged the responsible department maintaining this road to ensure that the objectionable exercise be put to an end and remedial follow up measures be initiated on top priority basis in the greater interest of all stakeholders. 

Further, Lerie Panchayat Kohima also cautioned all concerned to put an end to this menace in the best interest of all the stakeholders with immediate effect in order to avoid any unwarranted situations. 

Lerie Panchayat Kohima also warned of appropriate action against the defaulters. 

Meanwhile, the Lerie Panchayat Kohima has entrusted and authorised Lerie Youth Organisation to monitor, identify and submit a detail report about the defaulter (s) to the Panchayat with immediate effect.
