The Panvel Municipal Corporation (PMC) has decided to approach the district administration and Maharashtra state government for a piece of land in order to set up a waste processing unit and manage waste scientifically.

At present, the civic body is using the CIDCO’s dumping ground located at Ghot village in Panvel which has almost filled to its capacity, reports Free Press Journal.

Last month, the civic body has asked all the housing societies to segregate waste at source and ensure that the least quantity of waste ends up at the landfill.

Around 450 MT of garbage is generated every day in the PMC area.
