The Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) is carrying out a drone survey of the Bandhwari landfill site to demarcate land for a proposed waste-to-energy (WTE) plant, to kick off construction later this year. 

The survey of the landfill, located 40 km from the city, is expected to be completed in two weeks.

Mr Dhiraj Kumar, MCG’s Joint Commissioner, informed Hindustan Times that they are mapping the height of the landfill in various places through drone photography, as it will help in assessing the amount of legacy waste that needs to be cleared immediately to meet the land requirements.

Bioremediation of legacy waste is ongoing since the last three months at Bhandwari.
