Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) is the urban local body(ULB) responsible for governing, developing and managing areas under Guwahati City. The GMC was created under Guwahati Municipal Corporation Act 1971. The Guwahati Municipal Corporation was duly constituted in 1974 in the first meeting of the elected councilors.

The entire GMC area is divided into 60 municipal wards. The number of wards increased from 31 to 60 this month after delimitation. Each  ward is further divided into 2-4 sub wards/areas.


As of now Guwahati is the most populated city of Assam. The population of Guwahati  was nearly 9.57 lakhs according to the 2011 census. If you consider 1% annual average population growth, then the present population of Guwahati will be nearly 10.6 lakhs by now or more.

Guwahati city alones produces nearly 500 MT(metric ton, 1MT=1000kgs) of waste everyday. This waste is produced by 2.5 lakhs residential areas and 80,000 commercial establishments.

To collect these waste produced everyday in Guwahati city, there are 31 NGOs. Autos and Tricycles are used to collect the waste. 62 Autos and nearly 500 tricycles are used to collect the waste from the residential and commercial areas. 

In addition to above modern compactors, tippers are used as a secondary collection of waste. 

There are 2 functional Transfer Stations for collection of secondary waste and the main dumping ground is situated in Boragaon. Boragaon has a compost plant that produces nearly 5-6  tones per day (TPD) compost.

Collection of Waste from Residential and Commercial Places in Guwahati (Primary Collectors)

The collection of waste from your house and commercial establishment comes under primary collection. So, the person or agencies collecting from you are known as primary collectors. The job of primary collectors is to collect the waste generated by you on a daily basis for a nominal monthly fee.

The wards in Guwahati city were increased from 31 to 60 in this month. But before Guwahati was divided into 31 wards. Each ward there is a Non Governmental Organization(NGO) assigned as primary collector for waste. The responsibility of each NGO is provided below.

Job/Responsibility of NGO of GMC Garbage Collection

The NGO has a major role to play in GMC Garbage Collection.They use tricycle, thalas (hand pulled cart),hydraulic mounted trailer auto tippers, etc. for the collection of household and commercial establishment’s wastes.

NGO major responsibility are listed below.

  • Door-to-Door Collection of waste produced daily in residential and commercial establishments in Guwahati.
  • Street Sweeping of the ward assigned to them.
  • Collection of Monthly Charges from the households and commercial establishments as per the notification of User Charges issued by the Corporation from time to time.

Collection of Waste from Primary Collectors in Guwahati (Secondary Collectors)

The waste collected by the NGOs from your home and commercial establishment is handed over to secondary collectors known as Secondary Collection and Transportation (C&T)  . The secondary collectors are the GMC themselves. 

Secondary collectors have a fleet of modern compactors, tippers. The process of secondary collection of waste in Guwahati city is looked at by Zonal engineers, JTOs and Supervisors.

The NGOs dump the waste to 2 functional Transfer Stations in Guwahati. These transfer center temporarily stores the waste collected through GMC Garbage Collection service. They are listed below.

  2. Secondary Collection Center, GMCH, Bhangagarh

From these secondary collection centers, the waste is transported to Boragaon Dumping Center. Neary 85-90% of waste collected here is transported to Boragaon daily for further processing and disposal.

Processing and Disposal of Waste in Guwahati City

All the waste collected from Guwahati city is finally dumped in Borgaon, Guwahati for processing and disposal. The waste is segregated here on the basis of degradability, types of materials, etc. 

There is a compost plant in Boragaon was commissioned in 2010 for GMC Garbage Collection. These compost plant used Windrow Composting technology for composing the waste. As of now it produces 5-6  tones per day (TPD) compost.
