Residents of Maveripatti are suffering the effects of five tons of garbage from surrounding areas being dumped in their village everyday.

They want the landfill to be shifted. But municipal authorities say that residents near the alternative site too are protesting against it.

Watch how these villagers are stuck between a rock and a hard place.
