NKDA to set up a system for segregation of garbage at source
As a part of the Clean City Green City mission initiated by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the Newtown Kolkata Development Authority (NKDA) has decided to segregate the garbage collected from different places in Newtown at their sources.
Senior officials of the agency will meet the firms that undertake recycling work, to discuss the matter.
There is also a proposal for big housing complexes to do their own composting and the NKDA authorities will sit in meetings with them to discuss the issue.
In the Nabadiganta Industrial Township Authority (NDITA), there is already a composting machine and another one has been installed in Newtown. Both the machines are doing composting on an experimental basis. Manure from the compost will be used for rooftop gardening and rooftop urban farming.
