Members of Sri Sai Nagar, Santhiyagu Nagar, EB Colony Residents Welfare Association petitioned the District Collector on Monday, seeking his intervention to prevent the Corporation from setting up a micro compost yard at Rani Meiyammai Nagar in Ward 37.

The Corporation has been establishing micro compost yards at different parts of the city to process solid waste locally.

In a representation, the association members said that nearly 5,000 families resided in Rani Meiyammai Nagar, Vasantha Nagar, Santhiyagu Nagar, Sai Nagar, Sriram Nagar and EB Colony.

The Corporation was planning to establish a micro compost yard at a site earmarked for a park, they alleged.

Residents of the locality were not consulted on the move, which could lead to environmental and health hazards, they said.
