Palike plans four more garbage processing plants

Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is pulling out all the plugs to put an end to the garbage woes of the City. The civic agency has proposed to setup four new waste processing plants apart from the eight that are already under process.

Transport and District-in-charge Minister Ramalinga Reddy told Deccan Herald: "All the four plants have been approved by the state government. Though they were in pipeline earlier, they were cleared by the Cabinet recently. The four plants that will come up are biomethanisation plant, an integrated solid waste management facility, waste-to-energy plant and a plastic processing unit."

“The work on the plants being set up on the premises of Karnataka Compost Development Corporation at Kudlu, Kannahalli, Seegehalli, Chikkanamangala,  Subbarayanpalya at Kengeri, Lengaderanahalli at Banashankari and Doddabidarakallu in Yeshwantpur hobli, will be complete by March next year. We will pay tipping charges to the private agencies who will set up proposed plants and they will bear the entire cost of the project,” the minister said.

While the integrated solid waste management plant to be set up by Essel MSW Processing will come up at Giddenahalli and Magadi Road, the locations of other three plants are yet to be finalised, Palike officials said.

Meanwhile, BBMP Commissioner M Lakshminarayana maintained the seven sites for the processing and disposal of construction and demolition waste at a few places, were functional.

“The construction debris is already being dumped at Mallasandra, Kadu Agrahara, Srinivasapura and Kogilu, Gollahalli, Kannur, Guddadahalli and Mittaganahalli,” he said.
Referring to waste-to-energy plant to be set up at Gorur village, the commissioner said: “The agreement has been signed already and work order is also issued. The project will take off after the land is converted. We are trying our best to convince the villagers that the plant will not pollute the environment,” he said.
