The Siddipet civic authorities intend to make the city a zero-landfilling zone by recycling all the waste. According to Telangana’s Finance Minister Mr T Harish Rao, who announced additional funding for various waste and sanitation projects for Siddipet, the civic body has converted 579 MT of wet waste into organic fertilizer so far, in addition to producing 756 cu. m of gas from 2,522 MT of wet waste.

Mr Rao said the municipality is also recycling all the dry waste, which reduces the amount of waste dumped in Siddipet. He said that all the waste dumped at Bussapur dumpyard has also been cleared over the years.
