GURUGRAM: Urban Local Bodies (ULB) Minister Kamal Gupta on Friday directed MCG officials that waste dumped at secondary waste collection points should be cleaned regularly so that they do not turn into mini-landfill sites. The minister asked officials to visit all secondary collection points in the city and cover them from all sides.
Regarding solid waste management in the city, MCG officials told the meeting that around 30 lakh tonnes of legacy waste is lying at the Bandhwari landfill site. They also informed that 300 tonnes of waste is processed per day at material recovery facilities and 3,000 to 4,000 tonnes of waste is processed per day at Bandhwari. Officials also said they will hand over 10 acres of land to Ecogreen for a waste-to-energy (WTE) plant.
Ecogreen representatives assured that work on the WTE plant would begin by the end of December and that the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the plant would be awarded to a private firm by December 15. A nine-member committee has been formed. The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on October 29 decided to complete the waste processing by March 2023 to oversee and expedite the processing of legacy waste at Bandhwari.
“The ULB minister directed MCG officials to ensure regular collection of waste from homes and secondary waste collection points. He has directed the Joint Commissioner (Swachh Bharat Mission) to check on waste collection points and formulate a robust strategy to manage them,” MCG spokesperson SS Rohilla said.
In a meeting held at PWD Rest House, Gupta also said that since the new and old property IDs have been linked, officials should inform the residents about it and also invite objections and suggestions from them. He added that there are 42 lakh properties in the state, of which objections have been received for 3.10 lakh properties and subsequently resolved.
While discussing the state government’s campaign “Parking Ki Marking”, the minister asked the MCG officials to ensure timely collection of property tax. The Minister suggested that to provide parking facilities for the public, a portion of the wide road should be reserved for vehicle parking.
It was also decided in that meeting that the Regional Officer of Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB) will conduct a scientific study to assess the amount of leachate generated at Bandhwari and the number of Disc Tube Reverse Osmosis (DTRO) plants required for treatment. It was also decided that Regional Officer of MCG and HSPCB will strictly monitor the functioning of DTRO and leachate treatment plant.
