GNIDA to reward housing societies for waste management

Greater Noida: Like every year, Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority has started a competition among area housing societies to find the society doing the best bulk waste management and segregation. The winning society would be rewarded with a prize of Rs 2 Lakh.

Such efforts go a long way in strengthening the municipal corporation's efforts. According to the Solid Waste Management Rules 2016, Bulk Waste Generators are responsible for managing their own waste.

Officials of the Greater Noida authority will do verification of the top three societies and then announce the winner. The winner will get a prize of 2 lakh. Societies in the second and third position will get a price of rupees 1.5 lakh and 1 lakh respectively.

All the participants have to submit their data to the Greater Noida Authority by December 10, 2021. Moreover, Noida Authority has also followed the same move of 'Swachh City' and invited AOAs and RWAs to come up with jingles, short films, and wall paintings on the theme of Swachh city.

In a talk with CitySpidey, Manish Tripathi, a resident of Cherry County Greater Noida West says, "We are looking forward to being a part of this initiative and giving our best. I also would like to thank our maintenance team and residents of society who are doing a good job to clean our society."

CitySpidey also reached out to a resident from last time's winner society, Arihant Ambar, Sector 1, Greater Noida, Tushar Jyoti(37). Says she, "We are also participating this year. The authority has raised points on garbage collection and cleanliness and we all are working on it. I hope we will win this year also.”

Abhishek Kumar, NEFOWA President said, "It is a good initiative by the Greater Noida Authority. All societies are participating in this. I would like to thank Narendra Bhushan, CEO, Noida Authority who started this. It will increase the awareness among the citizens to make Noida clean."
