Garbage menace is causing lots of discomfort and its accumulation is deteriorating the health of citizens. There is a complicity in disposing the wet and dry waste in the city. Despite the efforts of Mumbaikars, BMC is finding it difficult to make sure that segregation work is done with utmost care.
However, BMC find it very difficult to handle wet waste even if the housing societies segregate the waste. It is of utmost importance to clear the garbage on daily basis with the help of the latest technology available with BMC garbage disposal trucks and dispose them off in a most scientific way. Residents should play a pivotal role in helping out the Corporation with a novel method to curb pollution and bad smell emanating from the garbage piled up on the street. Both wet and dry garbage should be segregated and disposed of in separate bins supplied by the local corporators to each and every society. Deonar, Kanjurmarg and Mulund dumping yard bear the burnt of garbage from all the 24 wards and there is no scientific way to dispose them without causing health hazard to people. BMC’s incapability to handle wet waste is causing a bottleneck and the defeat the very purpose of segregation.
