Ecogreen, the concessionaire for the Bandhwari waste plant and door-to-door waste collection service, has come under fire for not moving work on the ground. Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) commissioner Yashpal Yadav met officials of Ecogreen yesterday to take stock.
During the House meeting held last week, councillors quizzed officials on the door-to-door waste collection service, which was to be expended to all parts of the city by February. But that clearly hasn’t happened.
The commissioner directed Ecogreen to allot a deadline for each task and inform residents about the same.
Ecogreen CEO Ankit Aggarwal said, “Ecogreen has launched door-to-door collection of waste in 26 wards of Gurgaon, and by March 31 all wards will boast of this facility. The company has also started a call centre, where residents can lodge complaints related to waste collection.”
According to sources, waste collection has started only in 26 of the 35 wards — and even in those wards, residents complained of poor collection and disposal.
RS Rathee, the councillor of Ward 34, had also sought details of stamp duty paid by Ecogreen to the MCG.
A pact was inked by Haryana Urban Local Bodies, the MCG, the Municipal Corporation of Faridabad and Ecogreen in August 2017 for the city's first integrated solid waste management project.
The agreement listed construction of a waste-to-energy plant at Bandhwari, door-to-door collection of waste and establishing a call centre for addressing issues related to waste collections.TAGS: Ecogreen / MCG / Waste Collection / Bandhwari / Door-to-door Collection / Municipal Corporation of Gurugram / Yashpal Yadav / RS Rathee
