The wet and dry garbage should be segregated at source so that it can be processed easily. But despite repeated instructions, many people are not doing so. Hence, the PMC (Pune Municipal Corporation) sent notices to about 4.5 lakh people for not segregating waste. The notices have been sent to residential and commercial establishments, including hotels and shops. Waste pickers were asked to report about societies where garbage is not segregated. Using these data solid waste management officials went to localities to identify people. Head of the solid waste management department Suresh Jagtap said that the PMC is planning to take strict action, which includes not collecting their garbage from the house or imposing fine on them. Municipal commissioner Mahesh Pathak said that special funds are likely to be set aside for wards to promote and successfully run the zero-garbage scheme. Parameters like cleanliness on roads and maintenance of drainage system will be taken into consideration while giving the rankings to wards. The best 15 wards will be shortlisted and special funds will be allotted to them.
