BHUBANESWAR: Following sustained enforcement activities and awareness drives, many residents of the capital have started applying online to seek the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC)’s permission to stack construction and demolition (C&D) waste.

On the first day of one of such drives that began in September, the civic body lifted 41 truckloads of waste, which used to remain piled up on roadside and obstruct the normal flow of traffic.

Sources said as per the rules, one has to apply to the BMC to keep such waste at a particular place. The ward officer concerned then would assess the waste’s quantity and decide the fees to be collected.

“From September to November, we have collected more than Rs 8 lakh as fine from violators. The awareness drives made people aware to apply for the debris,” said a BMC officer.

Although the C&D waste management rules came in 2016, they were not being strictly enforced. The rules were partially enforced in the capital city only with the BMC launching several drives to seize such waste and fine people.

The civic body even imposed fine on state government and central government departments for stacking up such waste.
