C&D debris is often found lying on the roads of Bengaluru
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is looking for an empty quarry site in the southern part of the city to establish a construction and demolition (C&D) waste recycling plant.
Currently, there is no proper mechanism to effectively deal with over 2000 tonnes of debris generated each day in the city and it is often found dumped on streets and parks.
Livemint.com quoted Sarfaraz Khan, Joint Commissioner (SWM) as saying that they are looking for an 18 to 20 acre quarry and that the plant would be established in about six months.
The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB), has listed construction debris management as one of top its priorities in its 41-point action plan.
