The Odisha State government has roped in Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) for strengthening waste management systems in the state.

The Directorate of Municipal Administration and Directorate of Technical Education and Training (DTET) has signed an agreement with 114 ULBs and 33 ITIs for the repair and maintenance of equipment of wealth centres and sanitation vehicles, reports The New Indian Express.

“Wealth centres” as they are called in Odisha, comprise micro-composting centres and material recovery facilities operated by Mission Shakti groups. They handle collection, segregation, transportation, treatment, and reuse of wet and dry waste across all the 114 ULBs in the State.
