As a step towards handling Solid Waste Management of Mangalore in a organized way a 7-year agreement has been signed recently between Mangalore City Corporation and a Mumbai based company Antony Waste Handling Cell Private Limited.

It is a pilot project the first of its kind in Karnataka and comes as a breather for the city which lacks a proper Solid Waste Management system. With this the prevailing system of transporting garbage in open trucks will come to an end and it will be a big relief to the people of the city. .

    This Anthony Waste Management services was repeatedly focused as being the source of huge corruption charges. City corporation corporators made a big issue that corruption has even gone to GARBAGE COLLECTION.
    Hello corporators, have corporation rules also gone to garbage now. Because they now awarded the contract to the same GARBAGE company.

    God save us from brashtachar.

    VERY GREAT NEWS. THANK YOU ALL FOR BRINGING THIS TO OUR BEAUTIFUL CITY MANGALORE TO KEEP IT CLEAN.

    BUT OUR WORRY IS : THERE ARE MANY MANY BIG HOUSES WITH RICH RESIDENTS WHO DO NOT WANT TO PAY FOR GARBAGE COLLECTION AND PREFER TO THROW IN OTHER PEOPLE'S OPEN COMPOUND OR IN THE RAINWATER DRAIN.

    WE HAVE TO TAKE STEPS TO ENSURE THAT ALL THESE ARE ALSO MADE TO PAY AND GIVE THEIR GARBAGE.

    SURELY MCC AND ANTHONY WASTE MANAGEMENT WILL HAVE A WAY TO ENSURE THIS.

    ALREADY FEELING MANGALORE WILL BECOME A TOP CLEAN CITY. THANKS

    When is this coming into effect and who does one contact if there are lapses on the part of the contractor- there should be a 24 x 7 desk so that citizens can bring to the MCC notice ay shortfalls. Also there should be an SMS/ Email option to the citizens.
    Being an optimist lets hope for the best.

    Waste Management Agreement?
    Can it be experimented by taking
    some politicians from M'lore and Mumbai as 'models' at the outset?

    Well done Mangalore City Corporation and good initiative Mr. Mahabala Marla. It looks like this new City Corporation Team headed by Mr. Marla is doing some work looks really very positive, which the previous City Corporations have not done!

    Really a good relief for all the citizens of Mangalore. Look at the present scenario where all the garbage is thrown all over as if you keep your house clean and leave the rest as garbage bin!

    I have seen so many throwing their garbage in the morning at the side of the road while they are on their way to their offices or to work! We are living in a civilized society and if every individual becomes bit more responsible, then we will have a safe & clean society to live in.

    lets help Mr. Marla and the City Corporation to make our city beautiful!
