Bulk Waste Generators like Apartments & Hotels Must Compulsorily Set Up Solid Waste Management Units

December 16: The bulk waste generators in Mangalore City Corporation (MCC) jurisdiction had been asked to set up solid waste management (SWM) units on their premises by October 31. However, many have sought time to do so. MCC officials have been receiving at least 20 to 30 calls daily seeking details on various models of SWM units from apartment owners, hotels and catering owners. A few have already implemented SWMs in their apartments. The Hotel Owners’ Association has promised to come out with a SWM unit and sought land to set it up.
The MCC has already served notices to all the bulk waste generators who have failed to implement SWM. As per NGT guidelines, hotels, bars, wedding halls, catering units, chicken stalls, apartments, small industries, hostels, paying guest accommodations and educational institutions have to manage the wet waste on their own. MCC Commissioner Ajith Kumar Hegde Shanady had convened meetings with the bulk waste generators to ensure that waste is managed scientifically. The owners were also explained on a few models of solid waste management units. Some apartments have started using fibre bins based on the pot composting model initiated by Ramakrishna Mission in Mangalore to process wet waste.
St Aloysius Institutions has come up with a concept of zero-waste on campus. About 1.2 tonnes of wet waste is generated on  their campus. Steps have been taken to process it scientifically.
