Visakhapatnam to buy nearly 200 vehicles for SWM

The Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation plans to purchase roughly 200 vehicles for solid waste management activities. These vehicles are expected to cost the civic body around Rs 65 crore, according to preliminary estimates.

The GVMC has submitted its ideas to the government for approval. Bulk refuse carriers, tractors, rubbish hauling trucks, skid-steer loaders, beach cleaning equipment, mobile toilets, compactors, and other vehicles are among the 198 planned new vehicles. The GVMC will purchase these cars with money set aside under the 15th Finance Commission award.

The majority of the present fleet of solid waste management vehicles is old and needs to be phased out, according to the officials, reports The Times of India.
