The Noida Authority will not pick up unsegregated waste from residential sectors after June 30. This was announced by ACEO R K Mishra, who maintained that residents are requested to ensure segregation of domestic, municipal waste at their doorsteps.

Sector RWAs were also intimated to ensure setting up of compost machines (to be provided on cost of sharing basis of 75 % by Authority and 25 % to be borne by RWAs) to ensure compost from segregated waste at the residential sectors. “The NGT order of October, 2017, directed Noida and all residential societies of the city to ensure that municipal solid waste is segregated and it should be lifted from the site in compliance to the rules of MSW 2016 ,” said the ACEO.

The segregated door-to-door waste collection project is touted at reportedly Rs 370 crore.

Residents of several sectors, including 82, 45, 46, 51, 53, 34, 77, 75 and more, are perturbed as sweepers have not cleaned the streets for more than two weeks. “It’s been over 20 days that all sanitation work has stopped in Sector 82 as well as many other residential sectors of Noida. We urge RWA federation as well as Noida Authority to look into the matter as the sectors are littered with garbage leading to unhygienic living conditions,” said Yogesh Sharma, RWA president, Udyog Vihar, Sector 82.

While contractual labourers claim they are on a strike over salary hike, Authority officials said they are given salary of Rs 10,000 with benefits of ESI and EPF.
