Assam, Gujarat to take cue from PMC

The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has given presentations before the Assam and Gujarat governments on solid waste management being carried out in the city. While the Ahmedabad commissioner was in the city for a presentation, Chief Minister of Assam Tarun Gogoi visited the civic body's waste treatment facilities on November 27 to attend a presentation on the city's waste management plan, officials said.

The Assam CM had visited the sewage treatment and solid waste management facilities near Naidu Hospital. The PMC had given a presentation of the innovative projects that were being conducted by the municipal corporation.

The project of power generation too was encapsulated in the presentation. According to officials, the discussions were carried out on technical aspects of the project as well as funds being raised for it. Discussion also took place on garbage collection, participation of social organisations and steps for public awareness for their participation.

Gogoi was also taken for a visit to the garbage treatment plant at the Ramtekdi where an area of 2.5 acres was allotted by the PMC where the civic body had initiated the "waste to energy" project on public private partnership (PPP) model in Ramtekdi industrial areas.

The city generates nearly 1,300 tonnes of garbage on a daily basis and the quantity is growing by the day as the population is increasing and even as there were two sites proposed, it did not take off due to villagers opposing it.
