Noida: Societies embark on effective waste management in adherence to rules
As local agency has already enforced Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016, throughout the city, residents of several high rises in Noida initiated steps to comply with it. They tied up with house keeping private agency to adhere to the rules and simultaneously cooperate for a green and clean city.
Residents of Homes-121, a residential society in Sector 121, imparted training to the houses keeping staffs and residents as well for source segregation. They are working consistently to ensure that the rules are being followed.
Dinesh Singh, President of Apartment Owners Association of Homes-121, told that all house keeping staffs were trained for collecting dry and wet waste segregated. As well, the residents were also educated for source segregation. They have been keeping two bins at their homes and dry and wet waste are being kept segregated.
The society is equipped with wet waste disposal machine where the waste collected from each house will be disposed. It is a huge society which has near about 1,700 houses. Residents are being educated for cooperation with these staffs for waste segregation.
Singh said that ours is big society where generation of waste is more. But they installed a small machine for disposal of wet waste as it takes big space for which they need help from Noida Authority.
The Authority has also started collection of wet and dry waste segregated at around 20 sectors in the city. But high rises are doing it at their own because they could not be given similar services as is being offered to residents of bungalows in residential sectors.
Residents of Silver city, another high rise residential society in Sector 93, and other societies in Sector 99 have also begun the similar steps on their own. They have been segregating dry and wet waste in compliance to the rules.
