BBMP today generates XYZ TPD of wet waste. The wet waste from domestic generators (other than bulk waste generators) is collected everyday by the auto tippers at the doorstep. And these auto-tippers transfers wet waste to compactors/SCV at the transfer point with the help of hook loader to wet waste processing plants as per the prescribed Standard Operating Procedure following the principles of No Garbage on Ground (NGoG) and zero spillage of garbage/waste during transfer or transport.

The wet waste from BWG is collected by the empaneled vendors and the empaneled agency/BWG is responsible for processing of wet waste generated by the bulk waste generators through compositing, Bio Methanation or any other approved methods. Hence BBMP is not processing the wet waste generated by the BWG.
