Kochi civic body to not shift waste to Brahmapuram for one year

The Kochi city corporation has announced that it will not transport any waste to Brahmapuram for one year, starting from May-end. The decision comes as the corporation plans to complete biomining before the construction of a new windrow compost plant, which is expected to take around a year. The corporation also plans to set up material collection centers (MCFs) in each of the 74 divisions in the city, where waste will be stored and collected by the Haritha Karma Sena.

At meetings to be convened with stakeholders, the city’s plans and guidelines on waste collection, segregation, and treatment, including the possibility of setting up a waste-to-energy plant, will be discussed, reports The Times of India.
