Madhya Pradesh has announced the commencement of its integrated waste management project – Sagar Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) project – to facilitate novel waste management methods using high-end technological solutions. The State has also announced the launch of a fortnight-long ‘Gandagi Bharat Choddo’ campaign.

Sagar, where the project is being implemented by Ramky Enviro Engineers Limited (REEL), is a city close to Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh and has been selected as one of the 100 Indian cities to be developed as a smart city under Smart Cities Mission.
