Municipal Corporation (MC) Commissioner Sandeep Rishi, along with the officials concerned, inspected the ongoing bioremediation of legacy waste at the main dumpsite of the MC near Kakka village.
He reviewed the ongoing works for the bio-remediation of legacy waste and directed the contractor to expedite the work.
