Kathmandu: Police on Tuesday cleared locals’ obstructions from the Banchare Danda area, stopping garbage trucks from reaching landfill sites.

Police have also detained a few locals from the area. 

Locals have obstructed garbage disposal at the Banchare Danda landfill site arguing that they will not accept an agreement reached between the government and people’s representatives of Dhunbesi and Kakani municipalities.

The garbage collection resumed on Tuesday morning after an agreement was reached between the representatives of the Ministry of Urban Development, Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC), Kakani Rural Municipality of Nuwakot, and Dhunibesi Municipality of Dhading.

KMC officials said the locals have obstructed garbage disposal saying that they will not accept the agreement.
