Major issues :
There is a open dumping ground at the garbage depot near Moshi which causes foul smell, house flies and stray dogs. The stench is unbearable, especially between 7 pm and 6 am. It is affecting health adversely. Fire at the depot in summer makes the situation more worse. During monsoon, the waste decomposes, giving out a stronger smell.
