Kodaikanal’s Dirty Secret

Nearly two months after launching the #CleanKodai campaign and collecting over 4300 signatures, we finally met Kodaikanal’s commissioner Mr. D. Naryanan to raise the issue of garbage overflowing into the Tiger Sholai Forest

After a round of talks, the commissioner assured us that necessary actions will be taken up.

Here are the demands they have agreed on.

1. The authorities will set up centralised composting facilities in the town

2. They will also set up small sheds for processing dry waste in each community.

3. Working with the forest department, they are going to take necessary steps to clean the waste flowing into the forest.
