Greater Noida: A team of the Public Health Department of Greater Noida Authority on Monday imposed a fine of Rs 24,000 on Anand Ashray Society located at Phi 2. The authority took penal action in response to the improper disposal of garbage by the society.
Solid Waste Management Rules 2016 are applicable in Greater Noida. Under this, the bulk waste generators such as high-rise societies, educational institutions have to dispose of the garbage on their own. The authority only picks up the inert waste that cannot be recycled. For that, a prescribed fee has to be paid.
On the instructions of the CEO of Greater Noida Authority, Narendra Bhushan, a team of the Public Health Department visits all the bulk waste generators and levies fines for not improper management of the waste. In charge of the Public Health Department, Salil Yadav says, “On Monday, we inspected the Anand Ashray Society. A fine of Rs 24,400 was then imposed as the garbage was not found to be disposed of properly.”
He further warned of continuing the investigation campaign and taking similar actions against other defaulting housing societies.
