The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation’s (NMMC) Solid Waste Management (SWM) department is imposing fines on societies and commercial establishments that do not segregate waste, charging Rs 250 per housing unit. The entire housing society will bear the consequences of anyone who fails to segregate waste at the source. The penalty will be doubled for repeated non-compliance. Senior sanitary officers report that the administration has collected almost Rs 30,000 as a penalty from societies and bulk waste generators for failing to provide segregated waste over the past two months, reports Hindustan Times.
