Waste segregation: MC to seek councillors’ help for public awareness

LUDHIANA: Having failed in making folks conscious referring to segregation of waste at supply, civic authorities at the moment are making plans to take lend a hand from councillors of 95 wards of town. The MC has set a deadline to achieve 100% segregation of waste by means of March-end on the instructions of a committee shaped by means of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) for cast waste management. However, it's going to be a tricky task for MC, as a result of only some councillors showed wisdom about segregation of dry and rainy waste.

The Solid Waste Management Rules of 2016 and Solid Waste Management Policy of 2018 have made segregation of waste obligatory, however because of sure causes, officials have failed in developing awareness amongst folks. Along with this, they've failed in offering correct infrastructure to inculcate the dependancy amongst residents. In 65% of town, the informal sector is doing door-to-door rubbish collection, and the non-public corporate hired by means of MC, A2Z waste management, has began door-to-door collection most effective in 35% of the realm. The cars being used by the company have separate arrangements for accumulating dry and rainy waste, however informal sector workers don't seem to be provided with the same.

Sources published that residents were also no longer aware of the significance of segregation of waste, as they can use their kitchen waste at their home as manure, however they don't keep the waste one at a time. Moreover, civic authorities didn't approach many residents in this factor. MC Commissioner KP Brar said now they'd take lend a hand from councillors to achieve the objective. She said as in comparison to officers, those councillors were closer to folks, and in the event that they explain to them properly, folks will follow them.

Congress councillor from Ward 18, Vanit Bhatia, said: “I'm aware of the segregation of waste, and in my space, I'm going to get two colour dustbins installed. Along with this, if MC wants, I will be able to organise camps to make folks aware of the same.” However, BJP councillor Sonia Sharma denied having data referring to segregation of waste, and said: “I do not know about it.” But SAD councillor Harbhajan Dang said: “We are always ready to make folks aware of just right issues, however there's a requirement to coach councillors as neatly, as a few of them are new, or even they have no idea everything in detail. There should be classes for councillors as neatly.”
