Out of 67 wards in Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC), 57 wards are grouped into four packages for the purpose of the solid waste management activities (municipal solid waste collection & transportation, conservancy cleaning, drain cleaning & de-silting). Three private agencies under Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode are carrying out the entire SWM (Solid Waste Management) activities in the privatized 57 wards (Table 25) on daily basis, which includes door-to- door garbage collection, street sweeping, MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) transportation, drain cleaning, drain de-silting, conservancy cleaning and bush cutting. In the remaining 10 wards, BMC is carrying out the SWM activities on daily basis. Tricycles are used for door-to-door garbage collection. Mixed wastes are collected from the HHs and transported to dumpsite. The staff involved in door-to-door waste collection are provided with vest, gloves and masks to protect from pollution. Approx. 520 tons of MSW is generated per day in Bhubaneswar.

garbage collection Figure 28: -In spite of bins, waste is littered around it.

BMC has deployed adequate number of tri-cyclers, trollies, auto-tippers and 120-240 liters of bins for door-to-door collection of garbage.

The ULB is planning to motivate HHs by engaging NGOs for source segregation of solid wastes. . Emphasis will be given on kitchen waste to be used as compost in backyard of individual houses. Road sweeping is carried twice a day in commercial areas including Sunday/holidays. Also night sweeping of main roads is done through mechanical sweeping in BMC jurisdiction by engaging a private sanitation agency.

Action Plan for 100% transportation of waste

Tipper, trucks, dumper placers/compactors transport the MSW collected from various part of the city to Temporary Transfer Station (TTS). An area of 25.806 Ac near Sainik School is being used as the TTS where the collected wastes are weighed and recorded. The payment to the private agencies is done on monthly basis based on quantity of waste collected & transported. All MSW collected at the TTS is transported by the private agency through tippers and heavy vehicles to the dump site (61.485 Ac) located at Bhuasuni. The wastes so collected at land fill site are dumped and levelled in layers by BMC on a daily basis. There are no operational solid waste treatment plant in Bhubaneswar.

Implementation of online monitoring and tracking of MSW Management activities at BMC area under a PPP mode was taken up under Bhubaneswar Smart City Plan. Currently the BMC is tracking 65 vehicles as part of the project.
