Mumbai may not have dump yards, community dustbins in future
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation recently proposed to emulate the Ambikapur (Chhattisgarh) model for solid-liquid resource management (SLRM) in Greater Mumbai.
Under the Ambikapur model, there are no dumping yards or community dustbins in the city. Garbage segregation begins at home; separate bins are provided to each household for the purpose.
Inorganic waste like plastic, electric wires, etc goes into the red bin, while organic waste such as leaves, food, etc goes into the green one. The dumping yard has been converted into a sanitation park.
