Five new transfer stations to be set up in Vijayawada

The Vijayawada Municipal Corporation (VMC) has announced it will set up garbage transfer stations (GTS) in five locations at an estimated cost of Rs 15.4 crore. Recently, the civic body had deployed 25 CNG auto-rickshaws to collect the wet and dry wastes separately from households. After segregating this waste, the vehicles will reach the GTS.

The GTSs will be established at HB Colony, Jakkampudi, Auto Nagar, Ramalingeswara Nagar, Singh Nagar/ Vambay Colony, reports The New Indian Express. The civic body has reportedly expedited the project through balance grants from the 15th Finance Commission.
