The Greater Noida Development Industrial Authority (GNIDA) has floated a Rs 121 crore tender for door-to-door waste collection from its urban and rural areas and transportation to the landfill. Interested companies can apply for the same through GNIDA’s website by November 22, 2021.

GNIDA will hire the agency for 10 years and develop a system under which the waste will be collected and stored at a specific collection point. The agency will ensure that it is transported to the Lakhnawali landfill for treatment. The agency plans to develop an integrated control room to monitor the workers and vehicles through GPS technology.

At present, GNIDA depends on ragpickers for waste collection, who dump it outside the respective sectors without proper segregation, reports Hindustan Times.

There are 124 villages and 50 residential sectors in Greater Noida which generate around 300 metric tonnes of waste produced in the city per day.
