ulb: One Week Waste Management File Report: Dept Ulb to Mcg | Gurgaon News
The ULB department has recently formed district-level committees for different districts and asked them to verify whether the daily waste declared to be treated by the civic body is treated according to the solid waste management (SWM) rules of 2016.
The committees have also been instructed to submit a report indicating whether the treated waste is disposed of scientifically or not.
The ULB department again ordered the MCG officials who are part of the committee in Gurgaon to submit the report within seven days.
After reports that the private waste disposal agency in Bandhwari was dumping its waste in the surrounding villages, MCG had ordered the company in January this year to remove the waste from the villages.
“Waste processing at Bandhwari is limited only to trommels installed at the landfill site, as the tender process for waste processing at the landfill site has been stalled following instructions from the Department of Landfill. ‘ULB,” an MCG official said.
“I have received complaints from nearby villages including Bandhwari and Baliyawas where residents said waste was being dumped on vacant land,” said Ward Number 30 Councilor Mahesh Dayma.
The ULB department had created committees for Gurgaon, Faridabad, Panchkula, Ambala, Rewari, Mahendergarh, Sonipat, Panipat, Jind, Rohtak, Hisar and Bhiwani.
“District-level committees have been formed to verify whether daily waste declared to be handled by municipal corporations is handled in accordance with SWM rules / CPCB guidelines. Committees were instructed to submit their reports with appropriate documentation to this office within 15 days. But no report (apart from a report from the municipal council, Jind) has yet been received in this office,” reads a letter sent by the ULB to municipal corporations on Monday.
