GNIDA identifies 756 bulk waste generators in city

Greater Noida: The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) has identified 756 bulk waste generators (BWG) in the city and has asked them to segregate and manage the waste within their premises. Officials said that the authority will start imposing hefty fines on the unit who will not set up waste disposal system.

The move came after the authority set several deadlines for bulk waste generators including the residential societies as well as commercial complexes. These include those units who generate more than 100 kg of waste per day.

"The Authority had earlier set a deadline of 30th July for commercial bulk generators while for residential societies, the deadline was set for 15th August. Inspections were conducted around the city when Authority levied fine against 83 bulk generators in its area and have collected Rs 22.78 lakh as they were found not adhering to guidelines issued under Solid Waste Management Rules (SWM), 2016," said Deep Chandra, Additional Chief Executive Officer (ACEO), GNIDA.

The officer further said that 37 new bulk waste generators have started managing waste at their own. "During inspection, it also came to light that 30 residential societies, 5 colleges and two commercial units have already started segregation and management of waste at their end which is a admirable step towards making the city clean," added Deep Chandra.

The authority officials also said that those waste generators who have not installed composting machines and are reliant on authority to collect their waste are liable to pay Rs 7,000 per trip to the authority. Authority has also made it clear that the above mentioned charges would be applicable only till November end and these charges may double after this month.

Meanwhile, the authority has started installing around 300 dustbins in main markets and other busy places of the city, including GNIDA's office, commercial belt in sector Alpha-I and others. The authority would also install additional 1,000 dustbins under its jurisdiction which will also include smart dustbins which they aim as a contribution towards smart city.
