Empanelling of vendors to collect waste from bulk generators put on hold

  • 10/04/2019
  • The Bruhat Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has temporarily stopped the renewal process for empanelling vendors, who are authorised to pick up waste from bulk generators across the city, in view of the model code of conduct that is in force for the Lok Sabha elections.
  • Bulk generators are those who generate more than 10 kg of waste, such as apartment complexes, marriage halls, and commercial establishments.
  • Waste management experts have been complaining about the BBMP’s lack of monitoring of empanelled vendors.
