Two housing societies in South Mumbai have become the first winners of BMC’s incentive for processing their own waste. The civic body will give the two societies at Malabar Hill a tax rebate when they file their next property tax bill, and its officials will monitor their progress on a regular basis.
Godrej Baug residents are not only treating their garbage, they are using the manure from the composted wet waste to grow “organic” vegetables. Shehnaz Khambatta, a resident, said there are 500 flats in the society and they generate between 85-120 kg of waste daily.
The societies will initially get a rebate of 5 per cent, which we will increase later as progress is monitored,says additional municipal commissioner
