East Kambalam മാലിന്യ Garbage heap on the road named after Olympian PR Sreejesh. A picture of the waste, including hospital waste, has been posted on social media. Sreejesh has also demanded in the post that a solution be found under the leadership of Kunnathunadu and Kizhakambalam village officers. Pinarayi Vijayan has also been tagged in the Twitter post. A large amount of waste was dumped near the Padasekharam on the Kizhakambalam-Erumeli bypass which passes through Kunnathunadu-Kizhakambalam panchayats. Hospital waste, including used syringes, was dumped by the roadside. In addition, large quantities of waste have been dumped in sacks in bags.

Earlier, there were incidents of chemical pollution in the paddy fields and destruction of crops. Dumping of waste is common on the road sharing the border of Kizhakambalam and Kunnathunadu panchayats. It has been years since Iowa Road was renamed ‘Sreejesh’ Road in honor of Sreejesh. But with the streetlights dimming, littering on the roadside has become a regular occurrence. Locals are also demanding that police patrols be intensified on Iowa Road.
