Latest from waste
The Solid Waste Management (SWM) department of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has started imposing ‘nuisance fines’ on people for offences that include debris on roads, hawkers/vendors creating a nuisance, shops throwing waste outside, among others
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has issued a two-day ultimatum to flower market vendors in Dadar to clean up waste or face fines and police complaints. The BMC has provided waste dumping facilities, but some vendors find it easier to dump waste on the road. The excess flower waste is being recycled into fertiliser or incense sticks. Despite low sales, 70 to 80 truckloads of flowers are still being wasted daily, causing public anger. Some individuals are capitalising on the dumped waste by cleaning and selling the flowers.
