Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 20: At a time when Government is keen on implementation of Swatch Bharat Mission (SBM) , the urban local bodies in various towns are facing acute shortage of garbage bins, on the other hand lakhs of rupees have been spent to purchase huge Iron garbage bins which are proving to be useless.
These bins are so large and bulky that sweepers are not able to handle them and there are no vehicles available in various municipal / town committees that would carry these bins. From last 4 months all these waste containers are rusting at various Municipal Committees across J&K .
Details available with Early Times reveal that around 5 months back Govt through Directorate of Urban Local Bodies Kashmir / Jammu purchased more than 500 such waste containers for various municipal committees across state for more than 60 lakhs but most municipal committees have now parked these containers in their office compounds and on the other hand heaps of garbage are getting accumulated in the towns.
Recently, Govt issued order for Source Segregation of waste by all Municipalities with an aim of making it a mass movement. The Government of J&K on the directions of Union Ministry of Urban Development has asked Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) , Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC) and all the Municipal Committees of Srinagar & Jammu to start collecting waste in a segregated form from households and business establishment from April 7. "How can these huge bins be used to collect segregated waste as they weigh more than 100 kgs each. Had the same amount been used to purchase dustbins , each municipality would have been able to purchase around 3000 such plastic dustbins " said an official of a municipal committee
"We appeal newly appointed Director Urban Local Bodies (ULB) Kashmir to provide us two dustbins and he must order a probe as to why huge and bulky waste collectors made of iron were purchased by the previous director? " questioned Shahid Hussain a resident of Pattan Baramulla
Municipal Solid Waste Management (MSWM) refers to a systematic process that comprises of waste segregation and storage at source, primary collection, secondary storage, transportation, secondary segregation, resource recovery, processing, treatment, and final disposal of solid waste.
