GHMC to launch waste collection drive

Thu 14 Nov 2019, 12:54:25
The GHMC is now coming up with another special drive to collect construction and demolition debris. During the 10-day drive, over 235 MTs of discarded waste which usually gets dumped in drains was collected and the GHMC is working at an exclusive drive to collect demolition debris.

The idea is to conduct such drives once in every three months to facilitate households clear waste from their houses and avoid dumping in open places and drains, said GHMC Commissioner DS Lokesh Kumar.

With a focus on sanitation, measures were being taken to clear waste from garbage transfer stations on daily basis and maintain zero garbage status.

After achieving zero garbage status, volley ball courts will be developed at these stations for making optimum use of the available space. It will be utilised by the GHMC staff. On an average, 6,600 MTs waste is generated in the city and during Dasara and Diwali festivities, 8200 MTs of waste was generated. By increasing fleet for the 18 transfer stations, garbage was being shifted daily to Jawaharnagar dumpyard.

With rains receding, focus is also on pothole filling and road repair works, and to ensure sufficient supply of BT for repair works, hot mix plants were operated round the clock. Instant Repair Teams were focusing on internal roads and bylanes, he said.
