BMC to deregister 56 ALMs for ‘non-performance’

The BMC recently conducted a performance check of many Advanced Locality Management (ALMs) across the city and has taken the decision to deregister 56  ALM groups for ‘non-performance’. Other 126 ALMs whose performance has been satisfactory will not be deregistered, but will be monitored to improvement. 

Last year, in March, the BMC had roped in 719 ALMs across the city to look after segregation of dry and wet waste in their respective localities. This initiative was taken after the Bombay High Court flaked civic body for poorly handling the city’s solid waste.

The BMC stopped collecting wet waste from housing societies from October 2, 2017, except those who agreed to bring in compost machines to handle wet waste. As per the BMC guidelines, societies will have to undertake the composting of wet waste and only dry waste will be sent to the garbage collecting vans which will be further segregated by the municipal staff.

However, after October 2 deadline, many ALMs are monitoring and guiding societies on composting but many others are inactive, say reports.
