Chandigarh, June 12

Nine special vehicles of the Municipal Corporation (MC) started door-to-door collection of segregated waste in Behlana and Raipur Khurd villages here today.

Mayor Rajesh Kumar and MC Commissioner KK Yadav flagged off the vehicles with separate compartments for dry and wet waste. The vehicles will collect waste from about 2,700 houses in Behlana and nearly 3,000 houses in Raipur Khurd and transport it to the garbage processing plant in Dadu Majra.

The Mayor said the MC had purchased 99 vehicles with 3.2 cubic meter capacity to carry out the door-to-door collection of domestic waste in a segregated manner. Residents have to segregate dry and wet waste at their end, which will be transported in the MC vehicles.

The Mayor said 55 vehicles would collect waste from the 13 villages transferred to the Municipal Corporation  recently and the remaining 44 would visit the city areas not being catered to by private waste collectors. 

The work to collect segregated waste from remaining Chandigarh villages would begin within the next few days, added the Mayor.

He said that in the first phase of the project, 10 vehicles were launched to collect segregated waste from households at Sarangpur and Khuda Jassu villages.
