First BBMP ward to segregate wet, dry & sanitary waste
Ward 104, Govindrajnagar, is the first ward in Bengaluru to implement the new model of segregated collection and transportation of solid waste in three streams — wet, dry and sanitary.
Writing on Facebook, BBMP Commissioner N Manjunatha Prasad said the new auto tippers are covered on top, have GPS and a public address system, and have block numbers displayed on them.
The C&T service provider has been directed to ensure the following:
- Timely collection of segregated waste, ensuring 100% coverage in all 12 blocks. Wet and sanitary waste shall be collected everyday while dry waste shall be collected twice a week by the designated dry waste collector.
- Within 3 months, to ensure 100% segregation and zero black spot status.
- All drivers and helpers shall wear a uniform and protective gear and mark attendance via biometrics at the mustering point.
- Payment shall be made in a timely manner and shall be performance-based.
- Awareness to be spread among the public on segregation and repeated violators who give mixed waste shall be fined by the JHI and the Marshal.
- Single-use plastic remains banned and any use by commercial establishments shall be reported for fining.
