The Government of Bengaluru, Karnataka, has announced plans to relocate all waste processing plants to uninhabited areas outside the city.
According to the announcement, the plan is to set up so-called “Integrated Solid Waste Management Parks” that are supposed to host all waste management facilities of the city.
This should refer to facilities such as RDF production plants, WtE plants, dry waste aggregation centres, and landfills. The Forest Department has been tasked with finding suitable land for this project. As further stated, the construction time for this project is expected to be around 3 years. Information on the expected costs is not mentioned in the source.
