SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT

  • Town generates about 75 ton/day of solid waste
  • Major contributors are market, abattoir and households
  • Currently there is no provision of door to door collection. Households have to segregate the waste and deposit the waste to decentralised aerobic composting units
  • Rest of the uncollected waste end up into vacant public land, roads, canal and backwaters and thus, causing pollution
  • The town has recently won the recognition from United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) along with three other cities in Asia and Europe.
