The HP State Pollution Control Board (HPSPCB), on the directions of the NGT, has asked hoteliers of Kullu-Manali to set up sanitary pad/napkin incinerators and bio-composter digesters in hotels for the disposal of solid waste to keep the environment neat and clean.

The HPSPCB has shot off a letter to the president of the Hoteliers Association Kullu-Manali and asked him to motivate the hoteliers to set up the equipment in their units as the earliest.

It said, “The poor management of solid waste in hotels is a major threat to the environment, which may have a direct impact on the health of local residents”.

“So, it is a must for them to comply with the order of the NGT. It will also play a key role in attracting tourists here,” an official said.

The NGT has also directed the Deputy Commissioner, Kullu, to implement the orders.
