Garbage collection work in the city will go into private hands, the corporation will pay
Ghaziabad. The municipal corporation will stop doing garbage collection work in the city. Now a private company will do the garbage lifting tasks from the landfills to the landfill. Following the trial in the Vasundhara area, the municipal corporation has now decided to hand over the garbage collection tasks of four other areas to the private company. The Municipal Corporation will pay between 750 and 950 rupees per tonne of rubbish instead of ceding large vehicles, including its dump trucks, JCBs and loaders to this private company.
The Department of Health of the Municipal Corporation had ceded the garbage collection work of the Vasundhara area to a private company about three months ago as proof. Corporation officials claim that this lawsuit was successful and that the municipal corporation had to pay less to the company than the employees ’spending on diesel and salaries. After that, now the agents of the Department of Health of the Corporation are preparing to cede to the private company the tasks of taking the garbage to the landfill of the whole city. The city’s health official, Dr Mithilesh Kumar, says that in the tender issued for this, companies from Delhi to Gujarat have submitted offers to work. The work order will be issued to the company offering the lowest rates.
The contract will be for five years, the corporation will not buy new vehicles
The garbage collection contract will be transferred by the Municipal Corporation to a private company for a period of five years. Depending on the conditions, if the work in this period is satisfactory, the term of the contract may be extended for two more years. During this time, the Municipal Corporation will cede its existing vehicles to the private company, the responsibility for its maintenance will be borne by the private company. The head of Health of the city council says that the company will replace the vehicle that will be out of use after the 10-year period. The Municipal Corporation will not buy any new vehicle and will transfer it to the company.
Last year 133 million was spent on cleaning
The expenditure of the Municipal Corporation on cleaning the city is continually increasing. It spent 106.85 million rupees in 2019-20, 107 million rupees in 2020-21. After that, 133 million rupees were spent in 2021-22. In this, six million rupees were spent on vehicle maintenance and repair. City officials say that after the garbage collection is contracted, the budget of the municipal corporation will be significantly reduced.
1250 metric tons of garbage are generated daily
Between 1250 and 1300 metric tons of garbage are generated daily in the population of about 25 lakhs of the city. The corporation’s vehicles collect this waste from homes and take it to landfills. From here it will be taken to the waste collection center. The municipal corporation will spend about 10,000 rupees a day and about 3 million rupees a month for the transportation of this waste. That is, 36 million rupees will be spent on transporting waste.
The bidding process for the award of the contract for the collection of waste from the secondary collection point to the landfill has been completed. The proposals of the companies participating in the bidding process are being studied. The work will soon be transferred to the company by issuing the work order. This company will also have to build 150 metric tons in the five areas. – Dr. Mithilesh Kumar, municipal health officer
