Ramky to begin waste collection in 4 Chennai zones

Ramky Enviro Engineers (REEL) has entered into a seven-year contract with the Greater Chennai Corporation to design and implement an IOT-enabled solid waste collection programme.

The Hyderabad-based company said it will cover four zones in Chennai including Tiruvottriyur (Zone 1), Manali (Zone 2), Madhavaram (Zone 3), and Ambattur (Zone 7).

The programme, which has been launched by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami, will involve 100% waste segregation at source across all the households in the four zones within one year.

Ramky Enviro has acquired a fleet of about 850 zero-emission electric primary collection vehicles, 15 mechanical sweepers, 15 compactors and other specialised infrastructure, which will be operated on a 24 hours basis in three shifts, reports Construction Week Online.

The Spanish waste management firm Sumeet-Urbaser holds the contract for waste collection in seven other zones of Chennai.
