Starting next month, the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) will transport refuse-derived fuel (RDF) from the Bandhwari landfill to the waste-to-energy (WTE) plant in Sonipat. This is being done to clear space for setting up a WTE plant at the Bandhwari landfill.

The tender process is expected to be completed next month, following which transportation of RDF will commence right away, officials informed Hindustan Times.

The contractor will be required to transport at least 2,000 metric tonnes of RDF to the Sonipat WTE, which is a three-hour drive, on a daily basis.

Currently, RDF is occupying around 1.5-2 acres of space at the Bandhwari landfill. By September, the MCG had cleared six acres using trommel machines and is aiming to clear four more acres at the earliest.
