Construction of an integrated solid waste project has been put out to tender by the MMRDA, and work on the project is scheduled to begin soon. Thirteen acres out of a total of 23 acres in Badlapur will be dedicated to this project, which has a 600 metric tonne capacity. This is the first cluster project of two municipal councils and one municipal corporation to solve the problem of waste, reports Hindustan Times.
