Mounds of waste litter the streets within the residential quarters of Central Public Works Department (CPWD) at Minto Road Complex. The garbage is not collected for days from the receptacle situated along the colony park, which has the separating wall broken and unbearable stink emanating from it. Also, it poses a serious health hazard to over a hundred residents, including children and the elderly, who visit the park or use the passage on any given day. The litter is lifted across streets by stray animals, eagles and other birds preying upon the garbage dump. Stray animals, hovering around the dump, hound the morning walkers also. Repeated requests to the concerned department have not yielded any results, as they claimed that the contractors do not lift it because of a payment issue.
