The civic body has already received a number of Swachh awards for introducing such bins in the city.
These underground bins are 10 feet deep and 3 feet wide, have a movable cover and a smart sensor, which sends a message to the vehicle depot and sanitary wing of the VMC.
The civic body has already minimised the amount of garbage generated by installing on-site composting units at raithu bazaars, market yards and a few select residential colonies.
“Garbage is a major concern in the city. We started to tackle the problem with modern compactors and new dumping yards. Smart bins have brought a revolutionary change in the handling of garbage. Now the denizens are happier as the dumpers are not emanating a foul odour,” said VMC commissioner J Nivas.
