Tirupati Municipal Corporation revamps the city’s Garbage Transportation

Municipal Corporation of Tirupati (MCT) has come forward in order to recycle the daily generated garbage from the city in a scientific manner. For this, three garbage transfer stations to load the garbage into big size trucks by using compressing methods have been built. 

Under Smart City projects, MCT has constructed garbage transfer stations in the city at three different locations, one each near Leela Mahal area, in AIR Bypass Road near community building and in Balaji Colony. The projects have been executed at the cost of ₹22 crores.

 

 

 

 

Deputy Commissioner Chadnramouleswar Reddy, Engineer B Chandrashekr and their team after inspecting the garbage transfer stations on Monday, conducted a trial run of the machines.

Presently, the garbage is being transported from houses by small trucks to recycling station at Thukivakam and dump yard at Ramapuram, which has now become a costly affair to the civic body. Soon the new systems will be used for collecting garbage, under which the sanitation staff after collecting garbage from house, have to shift it to transfer stations by small autos or trucks. Later the garbage will be separated by the machines and compressed there. After completion of the process, garbage stocks will be transferred to recycling centre near Thukivakam by huge trucks and lorries. There, garbage will be converted into cooking gas and manure by the municipal personnel. 

Tirupati, generates around 240 metric tonnes of garbage everyday, due to which MCT’s sanitary staff is facing problems to transport the collected garbage to recycling centre. In the new garbage transfer stations, garbage will be separated as wet and dry waste.
