This led the biomedical waste being mixed with solid waste.
On several instances, TOI found that the GMCH was burying its mixed waste in the ground on its premises.
Aurangabad: The Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) on Tuesday requested the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) to help them in addressing its waste crisis.The civic body had stopped collecting the waste from GMCH almost a year ago and asked it to manage its own solid waste.Last year in March, after the AMC was restrained from dumping waste at Naregaon by the High Court, the civic body started to reduce the quantity of municipal waste.
Also, at times the hospital resorted to burning the waste.Due to unhealthy practices, the hospital ended up in a crisis that caused heaps of waste piling up at various spots on the premises.
However, over the consecutive months, it came to the fore that the state-run hospital miserably failed in waste management and ended up in engaging in illegal ways to dispose its waste.The hospital failed in educating its staff to segregate waste despite spending money on dustbins and stickers.
