News : MCG Helpline for Construction Waste Disposal
Gurgaon, India, Feb 9, 2016 -- The MCG has launched a helpline number for developers and private firms to get construction and demolition waste cleared from their sites and disposed of at designated sites, to put an end to the haphazard dumping of construction debris in the city.
The helpline was opened to public a week ago. Officials said any company, developer or individual can call the helpline to get construction waste removed from their sites and disposed of by the civic body. Since the launch, MCG officials said they have been getting around four to five calls per day.
"The call centre should entertain all requests for malba lifting from across the city. The vendor can't deny anyone. Also the vendor will deal and charge directly. If we get any complaint of malba dumping on roads, we will get it picked if it is in an MCG area as we can only work according to the mandate," said Rohit Yadav, joint commissioner of MCG.
"The intention of the corporation is definitely good. I visited all designated sites to dump C&D waste and found out that the sites are not yet prepared. I don't know how the corporation will dump C&D on unleveled piece of land. There is a need for better planning and implementation of the guidelines," said Harish Capoor, a member of Clean Gurgaon, an NGO.
