Newsline had reported that the corporation had sent notices to over 70,000 residential societies to mandate segregation of dry and wet waste. The civic body said failure to comply could lead to fines ranging from Rs 500 to Rs 1000.
However now with a number of MSW treatment technologies being considered, the corporation is particularly keen one that will treat mixed waste.
"Some technologies may work only for wet waste when we have a lot of mixed waste. While our aim is to achieve 100 per cent segregation for which we need the cooperation of the citizens, if we can have a technology that can treat mixed waste we will not have to force segregation at the source," said Adtani.
He added that segregation is already an in-built component of the landfill management project although the rate at which it is being carried out is meagre.
