Berhampur Municipal Corporation (BeMC) is ready to initiate the underground garbage bin facility soon in the city. The whole arrangement is equipped with semi-underground dustbins located on the roadside to store wet and dry garbage in Ganjam district.

The whole scheme priced around Rs 5 crore, the project will start after inauguration by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik. The CM will inaugurate the dustbins on November 10.

Talking about the initiative, BeMC Commissioner Chakraborty Singh Rathore said “This is the first of its kind in the state. The waste bins have been fitted with sensors that will send alerts to the control room as soon as they get filled. The bins will signal green if the waste level is below 40 per cent; waste up to 70 per cent level will signal yellow and the moment the waste reach 80 per cent, it will signal red in the dashboard and we will send cranes to empty the bins”.

The whole scheme is aimed to prevent garbage dumping at key points that generate pollution but also to maintain an automated fill-refill process.
