Ghaziabad to incentivize source-segregation

The Ghaziabad municipal corporation has planned to incentivize residents and the corporation’s staff in order to better manage the source-segregation of solid waste generated daily in the city.

Officials told the Hindustan Times that starting December, they will be rolling out an app-based solid waste collection system that will keep track of dry and wet waste handed over to the corporation’s door-to-door collection vehicles, and the points collected by households can be redeemed in the way of rebate in house-tax. 

At present, the city generates about 850-1,000 metric tonnes of solid waste, and a majority of it is collected from residential areas with the help of about 200 door-to-door collection vehicles, which do so every day in the morning in 100 residential wards.
