    DPCC asks PWD to prepare database of construction waste in Delhi


    In a directive issued earlier this month, the pollution controlling panel has also asked PWD to ensure all construction and demolition waste generated from its sites are stored in such a manner that it does not create air pollution in the city.

    According to DPCC, open dumping of C&D waste materials is one of the contributors of air pollution, particularly of PM10 and PM2.5 particles, in the capital.

    The move comes after a number of complaints were received in DPCC regarding air pollution generated from dumping of C&D waste materials from various sites belonging to all agencies.

    In its written direction to PWD, DPCC has said the department would collect C&D waste and transport it to an appropriate site for processing and disposal through resources of its own or any other authorised agency’s.

    PWD shall keep track of the generation of all C&D waste within jurisdiction and establish a database and update it once in a year and also submit an annual report,” the DPCC has said.

    It also stated the PWD will dispose of all C&D wastes lying at its sites in accordance with the Construction and Demolition Waste Management Rules, 2016.
