Kathmandu: Locals have obstructed garbage disposal at the Banchare Danda landfill site yet again on Wednesday arguing that their demands have not been addressed.

According to Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) officials, the garbage disposal has been halted as locals resorted to protest.

The garbage collection had 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.

However, locals obstructed the disposal on Tuesday. Police later cleared the obstruction after arresting the protesters who stopped garbage trucks from reaching the landfill site.
