Srinagar becomes free of rubbish and rubbish
SRINAGAR, April 17 (IANS) In a move towards making Srinagar trash-free, Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) has added 150 new C&T vehicles during the rollout of GIS-based GPS for real-time monitoring and monitoring. 100 percent of the door-to-door segregated waste collection system to remove trash containers from the city, an official statement said Monday.
SMC Commissioner Athar Aamir Khan has issued a revised district and ward schedule for garbage collection vehicles across the city to ensure 100 per cent collection of separate dry and wet waste. SMC has also begun the process of removing trash containers and bins from the city in an effort to create a city free of trash and trash.
SMC has added more than 150 vehicles to its existing fleet, including 100 new light vehicles, for primary door-to-door assembly and nearly 50 new heavy vehicles, including modern compressors, for secondary hauling.
This is the first upgrade of its kind in Srinagar’s solid waste management infrastructure. All vehicles are GPS enabled for real time monitoring. GIS maps and geo-fencing were done for all areas and pavilions up to corridor level to ensure efficient and timely waste collection. The areas and households to be served are defined by each vehicle.
The integrated IT system for solid waste management under the smart city project will enable comprehensive monitoring. It is empowered with features including live location tracking, route alerts, time deviation, grievance handling tools, and quality assurance.
Garbage trolleys will reach every household and every business in Srinagar. People will necessarily have to hand over the separated waste to SMC garbage collection vehicles.
SMC closes all points exposed to litter as well as locations where dumpsters used to be located. It is forbidden to deposit waste at such points from now on.
