2 min read

Mysuru: If all goes according to the plan, Mysuru City Corporation ( MCC) will adopt Nagpur model to get rid of waste dumped on the premises of Excel Plant at Sewage Farm in Vidyaranyapuram.

The huge pile of waste producing putrefying smell has been the bone of contention for years, with residents of area bearing the brunt.

Before that a team of officials and Corporators led by MCC Commissioner Gurudutta Hegde will visit the plant in Nagpur in Maharashtra and prepare a report by January 03.

Presiding over the meeting at ZP on December 24, district minister V Simanna who instructed MCC Commissioner in this regard also directed him to take Mayor, deputy mayor, opposition leader health standing committee chairperson and MCC deputy commissioner along with him.

Prior to that, Zigma Global Environment Solutions Pvt Ltd., presented a video demonstration on segregation and disposal of waste. The firm has succeeded in disposing up to 10 lakh tonnes of dumped waste in five major cities across the country. They are presently working in Nagpur where a huge pile of waste is being cleared.

Nagesh Prabhu Chinivara Director
of the firm told Mysoorunews.com “We have already visited the yard where waste is dumped st Sewage Plant, which is estimated to be about two lakh metric tons. It will take not less than 18 months to dispose off the stock, as our machinery will work round the clock with the capacity of 1,000 tonnes per day. If the project is considered it will take three months to set up machinery alone.

Anti- odour enzyme will be used to check tepid smell. The firm is currently working in 25 different locations in the country.

The segregated waste will be used for soil, stone, glass, metal and plastic. Soil will be used to fill the bottom layers in low lying areas, while plastic will be dispatched to cement factory. Metal and glass waste will be recycled.

The daily sample of air, water and soil will be collected.

Prabhu said ‘A proper and detailed plan is expected after January 03’.
