The state government has already issued orders for collection, transportation, processing and management of C&D waste in Hyderabad on Private Public Partnership (PPP) mode
According to the proposed new rules to be introduced by Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) shortly, Construction and Debris (C&D) would not be allowed to be deposited at any time by occupiers on roads, streets, pavements, drains, public places, water bodies or vacant sites. It would be the responsibility of the respective occupiers, owners and developers of a building to remove, transport and dispose off their C&D waste and their addresses should be furnished while applying for building permission.
In case of C&D waste generated during repair and minor renovation of existing structures, the occupier would have to keep the debris within their own premises until arranged so by occupier for collection by GHMC authorised C&D transporter from the designated places. If the occupiers want to construct, renovate, repair or dismantle any premises requiring plan approval should obtain prior sanction by specifying expected C&D quantity from GHMC. GHMC would set up a call centre which would handle all the queries relating to C&D. Based on the distance from the site to the occupier, fee would be fixed for collection and transportation.
The state government has already issued orders for collection, transportation, processing and management of C&D waste in Hyderabad on Private Public Partnership (PPP) mode. The government has identified two locations, Jeedimetla and Fathullaguda, for setting up C&D waste recycling plant in Hyderabad which till now didn’t have exclusive place to dump C&D waste. It is estimated that nearly 800 to 1,000 metric tonnes of construction and debris waste is generated in city on a daily basis.
