Mohali MC Instructs 83 Bulk Generators on Waste Management

The Mohali municipal corporation (MC) has recently implemented new regulations concerning waste management. It has sent notices to 40 housing societies and 43 bulk waste generators, such as schools, colleges, hospitals, industries, and hotels, instructing them to adhere to the Solid Waste Management Rules of 2016. This action follows the MC's decision to prohibit garbage from GMADA areas from being disposed of within its jurisdiction.

Due to these measures, the city's daily waste production has decreased significantly, dropping from approximately 200 tonnes to 74 tonnes. Previously, the MC's 14 resource management centres (RMCs) were managing the daily load, which largely originated from GMADA areas. They processed most of it, with the remainder being dumped at the Phase 8-B dumping ground.

In March, MC teams issued notices to societies and bulk waste generators where compost units were found to be unmaintained, including the civil hospital, PUDA Bhawan in Phase 8, the Phase-1 dispensary, and the Mohali Golf Range in Phase 11, in addition to private schools and hotels. Following their failure to comply, MC has now reissued non-compliance notices, warning of a daily fine of Rs 5,000.

Bulk waste generators are required to segregate their waste into three distinct categories?biodegradable (wet waste), non-biodegradable (dry waste), and domestic hazardous waste/e-waste?and store them in appropriate bins or containers.
