Red-Green bucket for every house for sorting garbage

  • Adyar GP’s attempt to collect Wet-Dry garbage separately

Mangaluru: Adyar Gram Panchayat (GP) has come up with a new approach to help the people with segregating their garbage into wet garbage and dry garbage. Accordingly, every house, shop and hotel within the GP’s limits has been provided with red and green coloured buckets.

Besides different types of housing and hotels, there are altogether 2,500 houses within Adyar GP limits. Till now, there was no proper facility to dispose garbage. Due to this, the people used to dispose off their garbage into the drainage or beside the road. Every week, the Panchayat itself used to clear the garbage lying beside the highway but the garbage lying at other locations would remain as is. With the aim to prevent the habit of disposing garbage anywhere, a garbage collection vehicle was started off on October 2nd which would visit every house and collect garbage. In the next phase, buckets will be provided to every house, informed Krishna Nayak, Panchayat Development Officer.

Monthly fee fixed

Every house, hotel, hostel and paying guest house has been provided with a red and a green bucket. The aim is to encourage the people to collect dry garbage in the red bucket and the wet garbage in the green bucket before handing it over to the garbage disposing vehicle. Besides, the Panchayat has decided to collect a monthly fee to meet the expenses arising due to the collection of garbage, disposal and other related works.

Accordingly, the monthly fee for every house is Rs 50, shops Rs 100, PG’s with 15 children Rs 250 (if there are more children than the fee will be decided with respect to the number of children), small hotels Rs 250, mid-sized hotels Rs 500 and Rs 1000 will be collected from big sized hotels. In relation to the collection of garbage within the Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC) limits, facility has been provided to pay the fee along with the yearly taxes. In the coming days, Adyar GP too has aimed to collect the fee in the same way, he informed.

Vehicle comes once in two days

Every once in two days, the garbage collection vehicle will visit all the houses, hotels, PG’s and shops within the Panchayat limits to collect garbage. Since the drivers do not know a few parts of the grama, a little delay is taking place, but within the next week, the vehicle should reach every house. There is a plan to add another vehicle for the collection of garbage in the future.

GP’s that collect garbage from door to door

Solid garbage management units are functioning at Munnuru, Kermal, Kinnigoli, Mennabettu and Tenka Mijaru in Mangaluru taluk. But there are no Solid garbage management units in Belma, Kinya, Ganjimata, Moodushedde, Someshwara, Padupanamburu and Jokatte GP’s. Hence, the panchayats here themselves collect garbage from door to door. Adyar GP is the new addition to these GPs. But, other than Mannebettu and a few other GPs, there is no information on the collection of garbage in the remaining GPs in the separated form of wet-dry garbage.
