Four waste plants operational again

After having been defunct for several months due to huge piles of RDF and compost, 4 out of 6 waste treatment plants in the Bengaluru area, state of Karnataka, are up and running again, as stated by The Hindu. At the moment, the sites are only processing segregrated wet waste and no mixed waste, and the local government is still attempting to get the facilities fully operational again. The civic body, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), had struggled for months to convince cement factories to buy and transport the piled-up RDF at the sites, and now cement manufacturing firm ACC has lifted around 18,000 tons of waste away from the plants. The Kannahalli plant, the Seegehalli plant, the Lingadheeranahalli plant and the Doddabidarakallu plant are all currently in operations; the Chikkanagamangala and Subbarayanapalya plants on the other hand still need to undergo renovation works before starting operations again.
