  • During bin lifting the helpers are to clear the bin, collect the waste around the bin and spread the disinfectant material around the bin.
Maintenance programs for community bins:
  • We intend to have teams(one team for each zone) providing the needed vehicles &equipment (For examplea welding machine and additional wheels forspot welds) to attend to speedy bin repair.
  • The teams will work under the control of our maintenance wing.
  • The assigned team is to check a specific number of wards every day & submit a compliance report.
  • Vigilance team consisting of management staff will perform random checksto ensure the proper maintenance of the bins.
  • The bins will be washed once every fortnight.
  • On a separate note we are saddened by the fact that certain individuals would resort to theft and vandalism of property serving our beloved city. To this we have taken precautions like doing away with the nut bolt system of the wheels. In place the wheel plate is welded to the bin.
   
 

Tertiary Transportation to Processing Site

  • Tertiary transports form the transfer stations are done by hydraulic compacted bins.
  • This is the most efficient transportation of the waste while ensuring the secure transfer of waste during transport.
  • In the case that the bins are not available, tippers with appropriate covering will be used.
