No waste bin, no licence

Business establishments, particularly restaurants, juice shops and bakeries, may lose their trade licence if they fail to put bins outside their premises for disposal of waste by customers.

“In the absence of bins, people tend to throw waste on the footpath... Our pourakarmikas cannot clean up the place as and when the waste accumulates. This needs to be looked after by the shopkeepers. We have in fact fined a few shops for not keeping waste bins,” said MCC Commissioner G. Jagadeesha.

He told The Hindu that the MCC would be forced to withdraw the trade licence of such establishments and take suo motu action against them.
