Nagpur Smart and Sustainable City Development Corporation Limited (NSSCDCL) has installed around 350 ICT-based smart bins at 175 spots in various parts of the city to maintain cleanliness. Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has provided these locations to the Smart City for the installation of Bins.
Ajay Gulhane, Chief Executive Officer of Nagpur Smart City, informed that Smart City had installed two bins- one for dry waste and the other for wet waste for the citizens. The citizens can drop garbage into these bins that can be tracked by a central system installed in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee City Operation Centre at the NMC building, Civil Lines. As bins get filled over 80 per cent, the volume sensor installed in the bins will alert CoC, and with a GSM and RFID-based mechanism, garbage will be disposed of properly, and an update will be sent to CoC.
“NMC had conducted a survey to identify some black spots where citizens dropped garbage in public places,” Gulhane informed and added, “These bins will be helpful to maintain cleanliness and cater for the requirement of the citizens”.
The Smart City has identified around 200 spots where 400 smart bins will be installed on a pilot basis. The capacity of each bin is around 1100 litres also, these bins are split bins with 30 per cent and 70 per cent openable mechanism. It will be equipped with volume, fire and toppled sensors. The Smart City has developed a Dashboard to monitor the alert-based system.
