Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has fined M/s A G Enviro and M/s BVG Rs. 2.68 crore for allegedly attempting to exaggerate the tonnage of waste transported to the Bhandewadi dumpsite.

The 200 vehicles owned by the two private concessionaires, responsible for door-to-door waste collection in the city, were found to be hauling construction debris that they were attempting to pass off as garbage. It is alleged that the contractors are perhaps charging the NMC significant sums of money by increasing tonnage without really collecting all of the city’s trash.

The NMC’s Solid Waste Management Department has stopped 202 vehicles between February 2020 and May of this year as they were attempting to dump solid waste combined with sand or building debris at the Bhandewadi Dumping Yard.

The NMC had engaged AG Enviro and BVG India in November 2019 for collection and transportation of garbage from the city to Bhandewadi dumping yard, reports Nagpur Today.
