Noida cracks whip on bulk waste generators

Noida civic authorities have fined four housing societies in sector 75 of Noida for violating Solid Waste Management (SWM) Rules 2016. The authority has generated Rs 4.5 lakhs as fine from these complexes, reports Millennium Post.

Noida authorities had earlier issued notices to bulk waste generators including the residential societies and commercial complexes to manage collection and segregation of wet waste within their premises. These include those units who generate more than 100kg of waste per day.

On Thursday, an inspection was reportedly conducted and four residential complexes were found violating SWM Rules.
