Chandigarh: Work to set up new SLF begins at Dadumajra

Gujarat based company Varun Constructions has been awarded the contract for setting up a new sanitary landfill (SLF) site at Dadumajra for dumping of non-recyclable solid waste generated in the city. Work is expected to start in a month.

The site, which lies next to the current dumping site in Dadumajra and the waste processing plant, will be spread over eight acres and developed over a year at a cost of around Rs 12.40 crore.

The municipal corporation (MC), through CSCL, has already begun the Mining of Legacy Waste and Recovery of Land Project at the dumping ground.

Nearly five lakh metric tonnes (MT) of ‘legacy’ waste that has collected over 20 years is being bio-mined and processed scientifically. MC intends to reclaim the entire 25 acres for scientific waste disposal and treatment.
