The Mira-Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) has become the first civic body in Maharashtra to make the segregation of solid and wet waste at source mandatory, and has warned that water supply would be discontinued if the orders are not complied with.
MBMC Commissioner Achyut Hange said the civic body is aggressively working in accordance with the Swachh Bharat Mission and has thus decided to keep the city clean and free of open defecation.
“As a part of Swachh Bharat Mission, we are creating awareness among people about segregation of solid and wet waste disposal. We have a dumping ground on 65 acres of land in Uttan. Also, around 35 acres of land has been allotted at Sakwan near Mira-Bhayandar, 65 km from Mumbai,” Hange said.
He added that usually, hotel owners do not segregate waste at source despite the corporation having vehicles to collect it. “It is the same with housing societies. We have asked them to dispose wet waste in the civic vehicle and solid waste with scrap dealers,” Hange said. —PTI
