Mumbai: 100% jump in BMW poses challenge

With biomedical waste (BMW) generated by the city rising by 100% in three months, the BMC is scrambling to upgrade the disposal facility at Deonar dumping ground. From 11,344 kg of bio-medical waste generated on an average daily in March, it has increased to 21,685 kg in June, reports The Times of India.

BMC officials said they have written to SMS Envoclean Pvt Lt, which runs the CBWTF (common bio-medical waste treatment and disposal facility) requesting them to upgrade the existing facility at Deonar to handle the additional Covid-related waste being generated by the city.
