Residents of Cuncolim had protested many times to demand shut-down of these units, as their hazardous waste creates health-related problems.

In compliance of the High Court directive, South Goa collector G P Naik issued the order for closure of the two units – Sunrise Zinc and Nicomet Industries.

They have been asked to set up landfill site for disposal of hazardous waste.

Salcette mamlatdar Paresh Faldessai and Cuncolim police were present during the sealing operations.
