New hi-tech garbage treatment plant soon in Warangal

GWMC to change current garbage disposal system.

Warangal: As part of building Warangal into a Smart City, the Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation is working to maintain clean surroundings in the tri-cities for which it is keen on changing the current garbage disposal system.

For effective disposal of everyday garbage, the GWMC officials are searching for spaces in all four directions of the city where garbage treatment plants could be set up.

Currently, garbage is being dumped only at Madikonda village on the outskirts of Kazipet.

Mayor Nannapuneni Narender asked officials to look for spaces where treatment plants with capacity up to 100 metric tonnes may be set up in about five acres of space.

“The waste disposal system currently followed by us is quite unscientific. If we are to build a Smart City, we have to maintain standards, even in the matter of garbage.

The new garbage treatment plants going to be set up around the tri-cities would include bio-gas, transform, and bio-medical wastage plants within the treatment plants to dispose the garbage in an environment friendly way,” he said.

The GWMC officials are looking for suitable locations for setting up the plants at Unikicherla, Paidipally, Mamnoor, Gorrekunta, Chintagattu, and other villages on the outskirts of the tri-cities. It is also decided that the tricycles being used currently for collecting garbage from houses everyday would be discontinued and autorickshaws would be used.

Promoting the use of LED lights to save electricity, the GWMC officials decided to use LED lights throughout the tri-cities. This they say would also bring down their electricity bill which is currently Rs 18crore per year.
