The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) is planning to establish two new facilities for the management of wet waste collected from its wards, including a windrow composting plant and three other green garbage processing facilities. The aim is to further segregate and process the waste to ensure proper management, with the windrow composting plant converting waste such as leaves, branches, hay, and grass into organic compost.
The BMC will also set up a decentralized facility for processing green garbage, and a separate agency will be responsible for the secondary collection, transportation, and processing of the waste. The city generates around 100 tonnes of green garbage daily, and separating the waste will lead to additional by-products, reports The Times of India.
