Starting October 20, the Gurugram Municipal Corporation will conduct random inspections to identify residents who hand over mixed waste to sanitation workers. A fine of Rs 500 will be imposed on the spot.

Despite repeated warnings, many of the residents have failed to segregate waste. The MCG special team will visit homes in each ward, and fines will be assessed immediately. The squad will also obtain information on offenders from the sanitation staff in addition to making sporadic visits, according to the city officials. Residents, Resident Welfare Associations, and Bulk Waste Generators (BWG) will get notices from the corporation regarding the directive to only provide segregated waste. The corporation has already begun sending challans to BWGs. Three of these generators received a challan of Rs 5,000 each last week, reports Times Now

The waste shall be segregated into three separate bins. They are categorized as biodegradable, dry, and rejected sanitary waste.
