Starting today, the Pune Municipal Corporation ( PMC) will stop lifting wet trash from the premises of bulk waste generators not processing wet garbage at the source, reports The Times of India.

According to the PMC’s solid waste management rule, any property with more than 50 houses or which generates over 100kg of garbage per day is supposed to have its own processing facility on the premises.

The PMC has repeatedly warned errant housing societies and big commercial establishments to process the trash on their premises.

According to civic officials, around 5% tax discount was given to housing societies for using solid waste management systems like vermicompost. 

A few activists have criticized the PMC’s move saying that the citizens should not be deprived of basic civic services.
