Having spent more than a year clearing legacy waste using its own equipment, the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has decided to speed-up the process by hiring a private contractor for the same.

EDMC Commissioner Vikas Anand informed The Hindu that nearly 8 lakh tonnes of legacy waste has been “processed in the last two years” and the civic body wants to increase the capacity of waste processed by roping in a concessionaire.

The EDMC wants to bio-mine nearly 50 lakh tonnes of legacy waste in two years. 

The EDMC House has also resolved that no challans will be issued residents of east Delhi for not segregating dry and wet waste until the EDMC comes up with a full system to collect and dispose of such waste.
