Sonsoddo to have modular garbage treatment machines

The Margao Municipal Council (MMC) has resolved to approve the proposal of the Goa Waste Management Corporation for the installation of seven modular garbage treatment machines at Sonsoddo. The seven machines with a capacity of 5 tonnes of garbage treatment per day will be installed in a phased manner at Sonsoddo. 

The Goa Solid Waste Management Corporation (GSWMC) has also observed that the present plant can only take 20 tonnes of waste per day and hence is not enough for daily waste treatment. The GSWMC has raised a requirement of 2,000 sq meters of land for a shade where the machines will be installed for the treatment of dry waste exclusively.
