Pune: CM Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday assured mayor and the civic chief about returning 25 per cent garbage depot land to original owners after the civic body executes the long-term garbage management plan. Mayor Mukta Tilak and Municipal Commissioner Kunal Kumar met the chief minister in Mumbai and discussed the long-term plan for sorting out city’s garbage issue permanently.

The chief minister instructed the mayor and commissioner to execute this plan properly and keep the target of addressing the garbage issue by 2019.
The CM also said that at least for next two years, the PMC need to use the existing garbage depot at Uruli Devachi as it will take time to erect new garbage processing plants and hand over new land for the same.
