Chief Minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar, inaugurated the integrated waste management project for Gurgaon and Faridabad. He laid foundation stones of 11 solid waste transfer stations in Gurgaon and said four more stations will be added soon.
Khattar said, “The entire state has been divided into 15 clusters for waste management and global tenders have been invited for each cluster. Gurgaon and Faridabad have been kept under one cluster. The project would be complete by February 2019.”
These stations will act as temporary waste centres where the waste collected from households will be stored till it is transferred to Bandhwari for processing. Residents will be required to segregate waste at source into two separate bins, categorised as dry and wet waste. Additionally, an app is being designed for residents to find out the arrival time of the garbage pickup vans. According to MCG officials, waste transfer centres, as well as waste collection vehicles, will be fully covered.
The state government had collaborated with Ecogreen Energy in August to develop Haryana’s first integrated solid waste management project.
