|The Lalur-Model Project for Solid Waste Management (LAMPS), a decentralised waste management project that was initiated in 2010 with the intervention of the then Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan, is in cold storage.|
Even when most of the streets are stinking with garbage, the city corporation is in no mood to continue with the much tom-tomed project meant for bringing a permanent solution to the garbage woes of the city.
Mayor Ajitha Jayarajan said that LAMPS was almost dumped by the previous UDF council itself.
"No project was implemented by the UDF council under the LAMPS during their tenure. As the project hasn't brought expected results, the city corporation is looking for implementing more effective projects to tackle the garbage issue," she said.
