The civic administration of the city has issued a directive to the housing societies a year ago to segregate the waste into wet and dry but it did not created much effect and the condition remains same even now. In view of this, the solid waste management department of NMC has issued circulars to the housing societies which generate more than 100 kg of waste to dispose of it at their own level. For this, two societies have been selected in each zone. Along with this, all the big societies of the city have also asked to make machines and other arrangements for disposal of waste.1000 to 1100 MT of garbage is being generated daily in the city. But only 200 to 250 metric tons of dry and wet waste is being collected separately.
After the agreement with Kanak Resources Management Limited Company ended, on 16th November 2019, two garbage collection companies were appointed in the city to collect garbage from homes. Enviro and BVG companies were assigned the contract to collect garbage. Years have passed but they have not started collecting dry and wet garbage separately till now. As per the civic authority letter the housing societies should collect dry and wet garbage separately in their premises. If they do not do so, then their garbage will not be picked up. NMC has threatened to penalize the defaulting societies yet the fiat has not been implemented till now. Many municipal corporations in the state are collecting a fine of up to five thousand rupees from those not separating wet and dry garbage.
