Chennai to soon get odourless bins
The Chennai Corporation will commission odourless bins to collect garbage. Going by this mission, the senior officials met with representatives of various organisations to identify suitable technology for the project. These odourless bins are likely to be commissioned in congested commercial areas in the first phase.

According to an official, technology for the project may include deep collection system of municipal solid waste. Over 60 percent of the bin will be installed at a depth of 1.5 metre. The vertical design means that only 40 percent of the bin is visible. The total height of the bins in one of the options will be 2.5 metres. The design will help compact the waste, with older garbage being pushed down and later ones piled above. Intervals of emptying can also be adjusted.
