After several delays, Aurangabad’s solid waste processing plant at Padegaon was inaugurated over the weekend by Minister Subhash Desai. Mr Desai said that CM Uddhav Thackeray has been working to resolve the city’s SWM problems, reports UNI..

At Padegaon, work has been completed on processing sheds, platforms, boundary walls, leachate tanks, and office buildings. The city’s other waste processing facilities in Chikalthana and Naregaon have been completed and have a capacity of 150MT each.

In a show-cause notice served to the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation in July last year, MPCB regional authorities had highlighted how the civic body was not following scientific methods for collecting and processing leachate at the plant.
