EDMC hires a contractor for SWM

Facing difficulties in timely collection of municipal solid waste, East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has hired a private contractor for door-to-door collection of segregated waste, removal of waste and silt from roadsides, and transportation
of processed waste to landfills or waste-to-energy plants.

Unlike other municipalities in the city, EDMC had tried to manage the process on its own but repeated lapses have led to a dip in its Swachh Survekshan ranking. The project will cost Rs 200 crore and the concessionaire will start ward-wise work from mid-September, reports The Times of India.
