BSWML releases tenders to streamline waste management

On January 22, the Bengaluru Solid Waste Management (BSWML) issued short-term tenders for waste collection and transportation from the city's 243 wards, which have 4.2 million households and commercial structures.

BSWML issued the tender for the second time after the majority of bids failed to achieve the required specifications in the November procurement. The revised tender will be available until February 8. The waste management authority hopes to complete the tender procedures before the state assembly elections in March.

The assignment has been divided into 89 sections, each of which covers two to three wards. The five-year contract is expected to cost Rs 5.90 billion per year. This works up to about Rs 2 million every month for each ward.

This is the first time that a waste tender process is being suggested for all wards at the same time. This tender will promote participation and aid in the simplification of rubbish collection and separation."

Every day, Bengaluru generates between 5,500 and 6,000 tonne of waste. Households provide approximately 4,000-4,500 tonne of garbage, with bulk waste generators contributing an additional 1,500-200 tonne. BSWML will now collect all municipal waste streams.
