15 bins for PPE, masks at airport

Pune: As many as 15 garbage containers have been installed at the city airport by the authorities for disposal of masks, PPE kits and other such materials.
Pune airport director Kuldeep Singh said these bins have mostly been kept in the arrival area, along with other zones.
Last month TOI had reported about PPE kits being discarded at different areas on the airport premises, mainly near the pick-up and drop areas at the parking lot, which enhanced the chances of spread of infection.
“Apart from the arrival area, these bins with proper lids will be placed in the pick-up and drop area. Flyers need act responsibly and follow the regulations,” an airport official said.
Earlier, authorities had said it was possible that some flyers, who weren’t aware of the hazards, were disposing the waste anywhere.
