Dharamsala introduces sensor-based waste bins

Dharamsala has become the country’s first city to get sensor-based underground waste bin network.

“It is a matter of pride for every smart citizen of Dharamsala that hill town is going to be the first city of the country to manage its waste scientifically through smart technologies and achieve the status of ‘waste-free Dharamshala’,” said  Himachal Pradesh Urban Development Minister Sudhir Sharma while inaugurating the project from Dari Ground in the city.

The Minister informed that 70 hi-tech underground waste bins have been placed in the city in the first phase. Every location has three separate bins for  biodegradable, non-biodegradable and inert material. The state government is hopeful that these bins will protect the environment.

“The town has moved far ahead in putting in place a state-of-the-art, highly advanced, municipal solid waste management system, based upon the principles of segregation at source, waste to value, zero land fill and community ownership,” the minister, who is also the local MLA, added.
