Hyderabad: The PIL Bench comprising Chief Justice Kalyan Jyoti Sengupta and Justice P V Sanjay Kumar on Monday issued directions to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to examine the possibility of providing separate collection boxes before multiple households separating biodegradable waste from non-biodegradable waste.

He even said that members of the household be called out through a whistle and the waste be collected on a regular basis. He pointed out that while biodegradable waste could be recycled as fuel, etc., the non-biodegradable waster would have to be appropriately treated and recycled.
