Kathmandu, July 1
Kathmandu Metropolitan City has begun collecting and disposing waste of the city after a halt of five days.
The waste had piled up on roadsides of the city as the local government could not collect them owing to an obstruction in transporting them to the landfill site.
Locals of Sisdole in Nuwakot district, where the landfill site lies, had blocked the road to the site putting forth a set of demands. The locals called off their protest after an agreement with the KMC on Sunday.
The two sides agreed to form a joint committee to work on the issues raised by the locals, according to the KMC. The locals had demanded that the government increase the compensation of the land in their village and acquire an additional land to dispose the garment.
The KMC has assured the locals that it will implement recommendations of the joint panel.
