According to reports, New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) will soon be bringing in an integrated waste management system through which garbage will be collected from doorsteps and disposed of in a scientific and mechanised manner, NDMC Chairman Jalaj Srivastava has said.
“A provision of Rs 100.09 crore has been made for public health and sanitation services in 2014-15,” Srivastava said while referring to the plan to upgrade solid waste management in the NDMC area.
“This will be done through an integrated waste management system by collecting waste from doorsteps and sending it for disposal in a scientific and mechanised manner at the Timarpur-Okhla Waste Management Co. Ltd (TOWMCL) plant,” he said.
That will eliminate the need for “dhalao” points, which have caused unhygienic conditions and dissatisfaction among people, he said. Srivastava informed that eventually, these “dhalao” points will be converted into much-needed public toilets.
As part of the process, there are plans for constructing state-of-the-art transfer stations in the NDMC area for increasing the efficiency in collection of waste and quick removal of garbage with the timely availability of garbage transport vehicles, he added.
