Bhubaneswar: Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Saturday said that there wastes won’t be dumped at the Daruthenga yard on the outskirts of the Odisha capital.
The BMC announcement followed vehement protests by the villagers of Daruthenga against the area being used as a garbage dump.
BMC commissioner Prem Chandra Chaudhary informed that as many as 43 micro composting centres will be set up at different places in the city and on its outskirts. They will be made operational within 6-8 months. After that, there will be no dumping of wastes at Daruthenga. “The solid wastes dumped at the Daruthenga yard will be recycled after bio-mining,” he added.
