Solid Waste Management

The Thiruvananthapuram Corporation is launching a campaign to clean up public places in the city, streamline solid waste management, and improve the functioning of centralised garbage treatment plant at Vilappilsala.The standing committee on health and sanitation  discussed methods to ease the pressure on the garbage plant which is at the centre of many environmental problems.The garbage transported to Vilappilsala would be restricted to a maximum of 100 tonnes daily and strict measures would be taken to ensure this. A decentralised environmentally-sustainable system of garbage disposal using alternative technology is also under consideration.Promoting domestic treatment of solid waste was one of the proposals.
