Himachal Pradesh High Court seeks report on apple waste dumping sites


Our Correspondent

Shimla, July 10

The Himachal Pradesh High Court today asked the state Pollution Control Board about the sites that have been designated for apple waste management. It further directed the HPMC to inform the Court about the steps it has proposed for the solution of scientific waste management.

A Division Bench, comprising Chief Justice MS Ramachandra Rao and Justice Satyen Vaidya, passed this order on the PIL based on the report carried in these columns on November 1, 2022, under the headline “Stench of rotten apples greet visitors entering Himachal.”

While treating this news item as a PIL, the Court in its earlier order had sought response from the Solan Deputy Commissioner, state Pollution Control Board and HPMC. It was reported that visitors entering the state were greeted with stench, emanating from trucks loaded with apples parked along the Pinjore-Parwanoo highway.
