Sanitation staff in Greater Noida to now get walkie-talkies | Noida News

NOIDA: In a month, sanitation workers in Greater Noida will carry walkie-talkies, GNIDA officials decided at a review meeting of the authority on Wednesday.
Officials said the devices, a handheld portable, two-way radio transceiver that normally facilitates small-distance communication, will help sanitation teams on the ground coordinate better and address any complaints quickly.
“We received the authority’s approval for equipping sanitation workers with walkie talkies. The procurement will take place at the Government E-marketplace portal to purchase 60 walkie talkies, which will be given to the teams within a month,” additional chief executive officer Prerna Sharma said on Wednesday.
Another key decision taken at Wednesday’s meeting included hiring an agency for construction of a waste-to-wonder park in Greater Noida West. Currently, the city has such a park – made of scrap metals and tyres – in Knowledge Park-4 area. Delhi also has one, while Noida has planned to develop one near the Mahamaya flyover.
On the lines of waste disposal, Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority CEO Ritu Maheshwari also told officials to appoint an agency for treating electronic waste.
“It is equally important to dispose of electronic waste as much as it is important to dispose of solid waste. A professional agency must be hired at the earliest,” she said.
Additionally, 600 new garbage bins will be placed at public places across the city. The animal shelter in Jalpura will be developed to increase its capacity to 1,200 animals.
The CEO also asked officials to work on the online application for registration of pets.
