Kolkata: Steel Authority of India (SAIL) has now come up with smart garbage bins made of stainless steel and is scouting for civic authorities across the country to partner and develop appropriate civic facilities and create a healthy society, top SAIL officials said.
"SAIL has taken a unique initiative to make the country clean and beautiful. Under this initiative, SAIL has launched smart garbage bins made of stainless steel, which will be able to send signal to the collection vehicle about the 'fill-up' position. A Smart Garbage Station will be set up at Bhikaji Cama Place of the country's capital Delhi, which is being developed by SDMC (South Delhi Municipal Corporation)," said SAIL official spokesman.
As starter, a Smart Garbage Station will be set up at Bhikaji Cama Place in Delhi, which is being developed by SDMC (South Delhi Municipal Corporation). SAIL will soon supply Stainless Steel garbage bins to another Smart Garbage Station being developed in North Delhi by North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) at Kamala Nagar.
As per plans, environment friendly garbage bins made of SAIL Salem Stainless Steel will be installed in the underground RCC pits in this Smart Garbage Station, which will not only collect unbridled garbage of the city, but will also save people from stink and diseases.
Smart Garbage Stations with Smart Stainless Steel garbage bins developed by SAIL will not only give a smart look to the cities but will also help to promote the image of Clean India around the world. In the Smart Garbage Stations, there will be a RCC pit in which the stainless steel bins will be placed. There will be separate bins for recyclable wastes and non-recyclable wastes.
Since the bins will be placed underground, the pit will be covered with fabricated stainless steel slip free sheets. Openings will be kept on the pit cover through which the sanitation crew can dump the collected garbage into the stainless steel bins placed underground, said SAIL.
