The BMC will hire e-bikes that will go door to door to collect hazardous domestic waste. According to officials, the existing vehicles that collect waste have only three compartments each for wet, dry and electronic waste.
There are over 1,068 gardens, playgrounds and recreation grounds that the BMC has acquired and is responsible for their maintenance. The civic body has, however, received flak for poor upkeep of these places.
These bridges include Pipeline bridge in Hans Bhugara Marg at Santa Cruz East, bridge across Juhu-Tara Road near SNDT nullah, bridge at Gandhi Nagar, Kurar village, bridge across Oshiwara river, Jogeshwari west, and bridge near Laxmi Baug nullah near Ghatkopar BEST depot.
The BMC had earlier tried to procure such drones, but were finding it difficult to get the specifications that they required. Officials said they are looking at drones which would provide assistance during search and rescue operations and firefighting.
The civic body has stopped all activity after the High Court struck down environment clearances granted to the project. Following this, the BMC has decided to approach the Supreme Court to challenge the HC order.
