Pemagatshel will now have a proper landfill at Tshelshing Poktor to dispose of waste from the dzongkhag.

Based on recommendations from relevant sectors, the Dzongkhag Tshogdu approved the site in August 29 last year.

Chhimi Wangchuck, the Dzongkahg’s environment officer, said the site is ideally located and away from human settlement. These water sources near disposal site will not be affected, he added.

However, people of Chungkhar are not happy with the decision to construct landfill at the present site. “We haven’t even provided clearance from our side but the work is already underway,” said a Chungkhar resident.

Solid waste in Pemagatshel is not a critical issue yes, but with growing affluence it will soon become a major issue with the coming of Denchi town.
