The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has prepared an action plan for processing of solid waste at Bhuasuni dumping yard in next three years. 

As per the recent assessment done by the civic body through KIIT University, around 16 lakh tonne waste will be processed at the site within a period of three years. The dumpyard spans 60 acres.

The project has been facing inordinate delay due to various reasons but will be undertaken soon as the civic body has received the government nod. The request for proposal (RFP) has been approved by the State government and will be released soon to finalize the agency, The Indian Express reports.

The deputy commissioner said around 2,000-tonne waste will be processed at the site on a daily basis. Around Rs 100 crore has been estimated for the project which will give further impetus to city’s waste management and sanitation drive, local officials were quoted as saying.
