Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation is planning to rope in slum areas of Mumbai for garbage composting. As per the plan, all the garbage from the slum area will be brought to a common area and composted.
The BMC has given instructions to its 24 ward officers to scout locations where composting can take place.
“We plan to ask those who go house to house to collect waste from slums to bring it to an area where it can be segregated and treated accordingly . The BMC would fund the expenses,” said an official.
This project will save time as transportation of garbage from slums to the dumps in the city used to take a lot of time.
