Salt Lake City launches efforts to improve SWM

The Nabadiganta Industrial Township Authority (NDITA), which is the key agency responsible for the Sector V township, has announced several initiatives for improving waste management in Salt Lake City. This includes mapping of wet and dry waste streams, capacity-building activities to streamline trash segregation at the source and recycling at the site (which was introduced in 2019 but has yet to be implemented).

Currently, Sector V generates 15 to 20 tonnes of waste each day, which is transported and disposed at a dumping site near Dhapa, along with waste from New Town and the rest of Salt Lake. According to a report in The Times of India, efforts are being undertaken to promote segregation of wet waste from office canteens and restaurants.
