50 MCG teams set to monitor waste pickup


Gurgaon: MCG has constituted 50 teams to conduct a survey to identify gaps in door-to-door waste collection. Divisional commissioner RC Bidhan asked nodal officers for each ward to prepare a comprehensive report on door-to-door waste collection.
The teams will cover all 13 wards in zone 1, and they will complete the survey within three days and submit a report to the MCG joint commissioner Pradeep Kumar, said an official.
Based on the survey, the corporation will deploy vehicles and manpower to streamline the doorstep waste collection, said Kumar.
“The primary objective of the survey is to identify the challenges in executing the door-to-door waste collection,” added Kumar.
Under the Solid Waste Environment Exigency Programme (SWEEP), the MCG issued 34 fines totaling Rs 17,000 for littering public places on Saturday.
The Haryana govt recently declared a solid waste emergency and announced a SWEEP campaign to address the issue.
The teams, consisting of 19 officials from various departments including the MCG, district administration, and GMDA have been formed. These teams will be responsible for overseeing and monitoring the progress of the campaign.
According to officials, they have been instructed to count the total number of households in their area and to identify households that are not receiving waste collection services.
The officers need to determine how many waste collection vehicles visit each neighbourhood and create a detailed report with their findings. In addition, the officers must ensure that the supervisor maintains accurate attendance records for the sanitation workers.
This measure aims to ensure that the workers’ payments are made based on the manpower deployed in the field.
The move comes at a time the state govt has declared a solid waste exigency in the city.
Days earlier, the chief secretary held a meeting with MCG officials and sought the cooperation of residents to make Gurgaon the cleanest city in Asia.
Days later, Bidhan flagged off 350 vehicles for primary waste collection to streamline doorstep waste collection.
Officials said 350 more vehicles would be added to the fleet, bringing the total to 700.
“The district administration and MCG have been working on a war footing to streamline the city’s sanitation operations. We flagged off 350 vehicles , which will be increased to 700 to ensure all houses are covered regularly. Daily collection will pave the way for clean roadsides since garbage will not be dumped by the roads and on vacant plots” the divisional commissioner said.
MCG commissioner Narhari Singh Banger and ULB additional commissioner YS Gupta also visited 14 markets last Wednesday and asked traders and vendors to ensure garbage was dumped in bins.
