TN: Waste management awareness drive

MADURAI: The Madurai Corporation has chalked out an action plan to create awareness among the public about the solid waste management programme (SWMP) that has been designed and to be implemented throughout the city. At present, the programme is implemented in eight of the 72 wards.

Inaugurating a workshop on SWMP for the Corporation Councillors, Mr Har Sahay Meena, Corporation Commissioner, said the city has been generating 350 tonnes of garbage everyday. A compost plan at Avaniapuram near the airport was being planned. While no objection certificate has been obtained from the airport, clearance from the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board would be obtained soon. The plant, to be set up by Mahindra and Mahindra would bring revenue to the Corporation, he added.
