MARGAO: The concessionaire of the Sonsoddo waste treatment plant, Fomento has closed the doors of the main entrance to the plant on Monday denying to accept any waste from the Municipality.
Fomento said that they have already intimated to the MMC regarding the closure of the plant due to lack of space and mixed garbage.

The in charge of the plant Sudin Raiturkar said they have given an intimation to MMC that from June 17 they won't accept any more garbage in mixed form.
