Greater Noida authority issues Rs 121 cr tender for waste management

On Monday Officials said that the Greater Noida authority has decided to spend 121 crore on a project to establish a system for door-to-door waste collection across the city and transportation to a landfill site for treatment.

The decision was made to collect waste from both urban and rural areas to make the city cleaner.

The officials said that currently, the Greater Noida authority relies on rag pickers to collect waste from residents' homes, which is then dumped outside the respective sectors without proper segregation.

The authority issued the key tender on Monday, inviting companies to bid for solid waste management across the city and develop an integrated waste handling mechanism following the Solid Waste Management Rules 2016. Companies interested in applying should do so by November 22 on the Greater Noida Authority's website.

The authority will hire the agency for 10 years and work with them to develop a system that will collect waste from residents' homes and store it at a designated collection point. The agency will then ensure that the waste is transported from the collection point to a landfill site in Greater Noida's Lakhnawali village for treatment.

The authority officials said that for better productivity, the agency will also develop an integrated control room from which they will monitor the workers and vehicles via GPS.

Greater Noida is made up of 124 villages and 50 residential sectors covering 38,000 hectares. However, the authority has yet to develop a proper system to handle the city's daily waste, which amounts to around 300 metric tonnes. The authority hopes that once the agency is chosen, waste management in Greater Noida will improve.

The officials told the media that if everything goes according to plan, the Greater Noida authority hopes to select the agency for the job by the end of December, and the chosen agency will begin working on the ground next year.

Meanwhile, residents claim that city officials have been talking about developing a systematic waste collection plan for years but that nothing has happened.
