Door to door collection of segregated waste by PBMC; Households, all establishments urged to keep two bins for dry & wet waste

Port Blair, Feb 5: The Port Blair Municipal Council (PBMC) has started door to door collection of segregated waste to achieve 100% processing of waste by means of waste transportation and proper disposal mechanism. In view of this, PBMC has closed its dumping yard at Brookshabad to avoid dumping of mixed waste by waste generators.
In order to co-operate with PBMC, it is requested to all concerned, household and all other establishments including educational institutions and banks to keep at least 2 bins for segregated dry & wet waste and one bag for household hazardous waste in their premises/establishments to support our municipal workers in further segregation without any difficulties.
The user charges against collection of waste by PBMC as per the provisions of PBMC-Solid Waste Handling & Management (SWHM) Bye-Laws, 2017 will be collected from each and every household and all other establishment. Incentives will be given to those who will manage their waste 100% by their own.
In order to maintain the city clean & swachh, all the officials not below the rank of Sanitary Inspectors have been authorized to take action by penalizing on the spot under the said bye-laws.
Any kind of violation of Bye-Laws/ direction of PBMC will be viewed seriously and necessary action will be initiated against the violators under PBMC-SWHM Bye Laws, 2017. Repeated violation found will be punished and the water & electricity connection will be disconnected without any notice and complaint against the same will be lodged at nearest Police Station for onward prosecution.
