Kathmandu, July 17
The Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) is registering private companies and organisations so as to let them collect and manage solid waste in the city.
The KMC is planning to proceed for registering private companies to address lack of coordination among the collectors and raise revenue systematically.
Currently, private companies manage 80-100 tippers of waste in Kathmandu every day. The companies are paying Rs 350 per trip to the city office.
Hari Kumar Shrestha, chief of KMC Department of Environment, says, “We come up with this move to bring uniformity in the delivery of services and collection of costs from households.”.
The KMC has been collecting wastes in eight out of its 32 wards while private companies are doing the same job in remaining 24 wards.
“Some companies have started categorising waste. We will collaborate with private companies to categorise waste as it is indispensable for long-term management and solution,” he adds.
The KMC has been collecting and managing 350 metric tons of waste every day. It has 21 tippers to collect and manage garbage.
