'On demand' collection of construction & demolition waste kicks off in east Delhi, Real Estate News, ET RealEstate
NEW DELHI: To combat dust pollution and ensure disposal of construction and demolition waste in accordance with norms, East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has started a service for ‘on-demand collection of C&D waste’.

It has tied up with the concessionaire maintaining the C&D waste plant at Shastri Park to lift and transport the C&D waste from the building sites to this plant. “It is an on-call system wherein the concessionaire running the C&D plant arranges for staff, vehicles for lifting C&D waste from under-construction buildings after charging nominal rates,” said an EDMC official.

Lifting and transportation will be done at night, payment will be made by the beneficiary in advance and the collected waste will be measured/weighed before entering the plant.

The civic body has mentioned the number of the concessionaire on its website. “As soon as the concessionaire receives the call from generators (residents), it will take all details, including tentative quantity, location and pictures. After physical verification, the concessionaire can ensure which vehicle can be deployed for lifting. After collecting malba and taking fees, the service call will be closed. After weighment at C&D plant, a slip will be given to the generator,” stated EDMC.

“We assume that the system will help in checking illegal dumping,” the official said.

Besides running a helpline, the concessionaire has been asked to advertise the facility regularly. The facility will not be available for bulk generators or government or institutional complexes.
