Ranchi: Jharkhand High Court directed the state government and all municipal corporations to demarcate land for disposal of bio-medical waste on Tuesday.

A division bench of Chief Justice Virender Singh and Justice D.N. Patel was hearing a PIL filed by National Human Rights Conference which highlighted the improper manner in which bio-medical waste was being disposed in the capital, increasing the risk of infection and pollution.

The bench suggested to the government and corporations to ensure the use of coloured containers to mark the various kinds of bio-medical waste for proper disposal.

For instance, the court suggested that spurious and unused blood samples could be stored in red containers. Containers of different colours would help in easy identification of contents, the court said, and handlers would, therefore, be aware of the safest method of their disposal.

Ranchi Municipal Corporation and Jamshedpur Notified Area Committee informed the court that they had already selected land for disposal of bio-medical waste and were working on the project expected to be completed soon.

Incinerators would have to be installed for disposal of medical waste, the government counsel informed.

The PIL highlighted the fact that bio-medical waste was being dumped openly in the state capital. Hospitals, both private and public, nursing homes, clinics, dispensaries, were perennial offenders.<-3.000>throwing bio-medical waste on to roads, drains and in water bodies.

While hearing the petition, the court had increased its ambit and directed the state government to ensure that biomedical waste was disposed of properly. It had also directed the member-secretary of the State Pollution Control Board to photograph and video record instances of waste being dumped indiscriminately by private and public institutions.
