KMC to come up with bio-mining facilities at Dhapa
The Bangla Government is bringing bio-mining facilities at Dhapa to reduce the piling of wastes at the landfill site.
Gradually the government will come up with a factory adjacent to the landfill site at Dhapa, where the waste will be segregated into organic and inorganic substances. The organic waste will be turned into compost and can be used as soil-conditioner for agricultural activities. The inorganic material found in the waste such as plastics, rubber, cloth, leather, wood and glass items will be used by the cement industry.
A Korean company will make a presentation about scientific disposal of solid waste at the office of the Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority this week.
