PMC to remove garbage bins for security reasons

Concerned over security issues after the serial blasts this year on Jangli Maharaj Road, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) will make 47 major city roads free of garbage bins to prevent their misuse by terrorists as convenient places for planting bombs.
“We have identified 47 main roads that are crowded and can be possible target for terrorist activities. The use of garbage bin in the serial blasts in August has made the civic administration initiate steps to avoid the misuse,” said municipal commissioner Mahesh Pathak
He said while the main reason for making the selected roads free of garbage bins is security, it is also in sync with the PMC’s efforts to make the city free of containers as they step up the door-to-door waste collection process.
