Two new waste facilities were inaugurated at separate locations in Jammu last week.

Katra has a new organic waste convertor and Material Recovery, reports news agency UNI. It has a capacity of 200 kg per day and was donated by Excel Industries. Katra is the base camp of the Vaishnodevi shrine in Reasi district. In the past, the Jammu and Kashmir government has faced flak from the National Green Tribunal on poor solid waste management in the city popular for religious tourism.

Elsewhere in Jammu, Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha inaugurated a Material Recovery facility at Bandurakh. The new facility is equipped with machines designed to achieve 100% recovery from the dry waste, reports The Times of India.

The state has stepped up its efforts in SWM in recent months, as reported on SolidWasteIndia.com.
