Construction waste pick-up starts, to last 2 months

The Municipal Corporation began its campaign to lift construction waste from different sectors on Tuesday. Vehicles of the civic body went to a number of sectors picking up construction waste that had been thrown along the roadside.

Over the next two months, construction waste from across the city would be lifted. The civic body has also decided that thereafter, a fine would be imposed on residents, who throw construction waste at unauthorised places.

Mayor Subhash Chawla had after taking over, listed making the city construction free as one of his priorities. As a step towards this directions, officials of different divisions were asked to send across vehicles to collect the construction waste.

While there are designated spots for throwing construction waste, it is seen that the waste is dumped near greenbelts, parks or along the roads. The heap keeps growing with residents also throwing garbage on it.

Malba by-laws, to deal with the problem of construction waste were framed around three years back. These, however, have not been finalised. As per the by-laws, heavy fine would be imposed on those who throw construction waste at non-designated spots. The civic body would have to review the rules for imposing fines on the residents. Union Minister Pawan Bansal has also offered money from the MPLAD funds, for the purchase of vehicles to be used in the process.
