ITC to set up 13 trash processing centres

Consumer goods major ITC Limited will set up garbage processing centres in 13 wards of the City as part of its ‘Wealth out of Waste’ programme. The centres are expected to be operational in two months.

B Joga Rao, Vice President, ITC Limited said here on Saturday that City produces 5,000 tonnes of waste per day of which about 1,200 tonnes could be reused in the initial stage itself. To create an awareness about recyling, National Recyling Day will be observed on July 1 at the National College Grounds, he said.

Palike Commissioner M Lakshminarayana said the BBMP will extend all co-operation to ITC Limited. “There is no rule as of now to take action against people who throw garbage at public places. We can impose fine on such people only after the government brings in a rule,” he said.
