Have begun scientific disposal of sanitary waste: UT civic body
The Chandigarh Municipal Corporation on Sunday said that they have started scientific disposal of sanitary waste, adding that they recently entered into an agreement with an authorised processor of biomedical waste in Chandigarh, which has all facilities of incineration of sanitary waste.
While sharing information about this, MC Commissioner Anindita Mitra said that it was a big challenge before the civic body as to what to do with menstrual waste, which is a prominent source of microbial contamination.

She said that though the MC had started collection of sanitary waste from the residents six months ago, its scientific disposal posed a major challenge.
She added that even though citizens wrap sanitary napkins in a newspaper and throw it in a dustbin, it leads to prolific growth of microorganisms in the absence of an immediate collection system.
