ARANTHANGI: The Municipal council has urged the State government to transfer a piece of land under the maintenance of the Revenue Department of Thanjavur district to the municipality for executing its solid waste management programme. A proposal tabled at the council's monthly meeting held here on Wednesday, said that the municipality needed about eight acres of land for setting up a yard for dumping solid waste and for a compost yard.
Pointing out that the population of the town was on the rise, the resolution said that at least 8 acres of land would be required for the long-term implementation of the solid waste management programme. P. Mariappan, Municipal Chairman, who presided over the meeting, said that solid waste management was a people-oriented and pollution-free programme. The Revenue Department of Thanjavur district possessed a sprawling site called Chathiram in Aranthangi town. The site was being used only for organising the weekly shandy on Tuesday.
