It is the second major dump yard in Chennai opened in the year 1987. It lies between old Mahabalipuram Road and Perungudi lake marshes(Pallikaranai). The dump yard does burning of garbage despite it being banned. The dump yard also spills into the pallikarnai marshland which is home to a lot of local and migratory birds. The plans to close the dump yard by the corporation have not yet been sanctioned.
