Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh commented that earlier, 90 percent of
waste was spread at open places in the city, but it has been brought down to
30 percent in the last 2 years.
"Now the practice of spreading waste has been reduced to 30 percent in last
two years, earlier which was 90 percent... We are in progress to construct

collection)," he said.

or Secondary Transfer Station (STS) of Ward No. 2 of South City in Khilgaon

said, "Today is the birthday of our Prime Minister, who is a successful
leader, shelter for the helpless and distressed people".
