CHANGE IN GARBAGE COLLECTION TIMINGS
The civic body has said it would refuse to collect garbage if it is not segregated into wet (biodegradable) and dry (recyclable) from May 30. The solid waste management department has 69 compactors. Around 16,000 bins from societies and 600 community bins are lifted daily. It has 50 small tippers and 8 green waste collection vehicles.
There are some changes garbage collection timings. The NMMC will start collecting garbage at 6am from Monday, instead of 7am. Similarly, the process of mechanical sweeping that used to start at 6am will be done from 5am to 1pm in zone 1 and from 1pm to 9pm in zone 2.
