VMC set to install 24 smart bins under ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’

smart dumper binsIn a bid to streamline garbage collection, Vijayawada Municipal Corporation (VMC) is set to install 24 smart dumper bins across the city worth Rs 9.5 lakh each.

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.
