Govt to tender out waste mgmt in cluster towns
9/13/2017 11:06:37 PM
Early Times Report

Srinagar, Sept 13: In order to undertake scientific Solid Waste Management (SWM) across different towns of the state, the Housing and Urban Development Department (HUDD) is planning to tender out the work by creating as many as 15 cluster towns.
Details available with Early Times reveal that for each cluster which consists of four towns or more, an amount of Rs 18 crore has been allocated by the government. Sources in the HUDD say that work would be tendered out soon on Public Private Partnership (PPP) model.
Earlier, Commissioner Secretary HUDD, vide order No: HUD /Plan /28-III/2015, dated 29.3.2017, had directed Commissioners of Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC), Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC), Director ULB Jammu and Srinagar, and Deputy Commissioners of Leh and Kargil to give massive thrust by making issue of source segregation into a mass movement. But till date the order is yet to be implemented across state.
Sources say that present mode of PPP also is not focused on source segregation of waste as the contractors have to lift the waste in unsegregated form with the help of local municipalities/town area committees.
The order of Commissioner Secretary said that every household and every waste generator should start segregating their waste into two bins -green and blue (green for organic waste and blue for inorganic waste). "To make this initiative a historical effort where 4041 cities of country should start source segregation on June 5, on occasion of world Environment day" reads the order. Till date two dustbins haven't been provided to the households by municipalities across state.
As of now not even single municipal authority in J&K is undertaking source segregation of waste. Pertinent to mention that government is yet to prepare the Detailed Project Report (DPR) on managing solid waste on scientific lines as per Municipal Solid Waste Rules 2000 and 2016 . The failure to prepare the DPR has lead to severe problems in towns across J&K where the local municipalities have miserably failed to treat the waste which is usually thrown into local water-bodies and forest areas at several places.
Municipal SWM refers to a systematic process that comprises of waste segregation and storage at source, primary collection, secondary storage, transportation, secondary segregation, resource recovery, processing, treatment, and final disposal of solid waste.
As per the SBM guidelines Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) are to prepare DPR for SWM for their towns in consultation with state governments. Smaller cities can form clusters to become viable entities to attract private investment. 100% Cost reimbursement for preparing the DPR shall be done by government of India as per unit cost and norms set up by National Advisory and Review Committee (NARC).
The State governments may handhold ULBs in quickly preparing DPRs for SWM by empanelling /shortlisting /identifying private or government agencies for the same.
