The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC), Maharashtra, is relocating its proposed C&D waste plant. The location will change from an existing garbage depot at the city outskirts in Pathardi to Makhmalabad.

This decision was made, according to civic officials, due to the increased daily waste collection. The collection in the city currently sums up to around 500 tpd, which is likely to jump to 800 tpd over the upcoming 5 years. Cost for the new plant should amount to more than INR 70 million (EUR 850,000).

NMC will receive INR 70 million in governmental grants. This includes a INR 35 million (EUR 425,000) grant under the Swachh Bharat Mission, and INR 35 million in funds under a national clean air programme.

A contractor for construction and operation, as well as a work order is to be issued in the short term and the plant should be put into operation “shortly”, as further reported.
