The Municipal Corporation has taken on the responsibility of restoring the city's sanitation network, allocating an annual budget of Rs. 17.33 crores across the corporation's 70 wards. Additionally, the UIT (Urban Improvement Trust) will invest around Rs.12 crores in this initiative. Tender calls have been issued to facilitate this process. Under this new system, the sanitation infrastructure will be divided into distinct components. Each residential complex will have two large dustbins, one for wet waste and the other for dry waste. Residents will be charged Rs 40 per month per flat for this service. The Corporation has installed these dual dustbin units in all complexes to ensure proper waste separation. It is obligatory for all residents to deposit their garbage in these bins, from where it will be collected by waste disposal vehicles. This Rs. 40 charge per flat will be implemented in both existing complexes and the new UIT-area developments, maintaining consistency in the waste management system.
The Municipal Corporation has undertaken the task of categorizing the UIT (Urban Improvement Trust) areas into four distinct zones, in addition to the existing 70 wards. The first zone includes Savina, Titardi, Ghol ki Pati, Sector 14, Govardhanvilas, and Balicha, while the second zone encompasses Rebariyon ka Gurha, Bedwas, Debari, Dagiyon ki Pacholi,Jharnon Ki Sarai,, Manva Kheda, Para Khet, and other localities. These zones are scheduled to become operational starting from August 18. The Corporation is actively in the process of soliciting tenders for the management of waste disposal services in these two zones as well.
Currently, the city's wards are collectively gathering approximately 125 tonnes of garbage. Among these figures, around 80 tonnes originate from door-to-door collections, while an additional 45 tonnes are gathered daily through the utilisation of 20 tractors. Following the disposal process, this waste is transported to the Sikh Colony Transfer Station. There, the waste is sorted into wet and dry categories, after which capsules are formulated and dispatched to the trading area. However, it is noteworthy that the waste generated in the UIT area follows a distinct route, being directly transported to Balicha for disposal.
