Clean home-gullies is Fort’s motto
Residents in the area have urged the civic authorities to create awareness about a clean neighbourhood
finding people who throw garbage is difficult as habitual offenders also throw garbage in the night when there is noone watching. “Sometimes so much garbage is thrown at one go that there is a loud thumping sound. We sometimes fear that something has collapsed,” said Mehernosh Bharucha, who lives with an aged mother, and complains of getting disturbed at night.
“In my building, the water tank is adjacent to the house-gully. There is always a risk of water getting contaminated due to that. Rodents are also a big problem because people throw garbage,” said Irene Fernandes, another resident.
