Eco Mela at Powai Heritage Gardens Jan 14th! Segregation of waste was made mandatory in 2000 under Municipal Solid Waste rules and again in 2006 under Cleanliness and Sanitation Bylaws, but officials from the BMC were not able to implement the same a hundred percent as there were little resources then and there wasn’t enough space for processing garbage. Now segregation of garbage at source has become mandatory and one can be fined.
Most citizens blame the BMC trucks of putting both wet and dry back into the truck together again as there are no separate dumping grounds…so a middle ground has to be met where citizens and house keeping of co-op housing scoieites pitchin to promote the concept which is far more talked about and less done…so like charity begins at home so does garbage segregation!!!!
