BMC takes Navi Mumbai route, single contractor to carry out waste disposal

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has adopted Navi Mumbai’s model of garbage collection. The model was implemented in three wards from Tuesday. Now onward, garbage collection in Knadivli (west), Borivali, and Dahisar will be carried out by a single contractor.

In addition, the garbage collection trucks and bins will have RFID chips to monitor the collection. The civic body has sought six months time to fix the chips.
