Source: The Times of India, Gurugram, May, 2017 :-No data on composition of waste at Bandhwari treatment plant is available with the civic authorities, according to a report submitted by the Central Pollution Control Board(CPCB) with the National Green Tribunal (NGT).The CPCB recently filed a comprehensive report on the action plan submitted by Haryana civic authorities for solid waste management conducted by municipal corporations at Bandhwari waste treatment plant over the last two years. "Waste generation data (has been) provided on cluster basis but no composition/characteristics data of waste is available," states the report (a copy of which is with TOI)."There is no data available on what kind of waste is generated and collected at Bandhwari waste treatment plant. Therefore, it has been suggested that a separate action plan for reclaiming existing dumping sites for bio-mining/capping/closure is adopted. Also a state policy or strategy for sustainability of waste treatment and compost must be formed," said a CPCB official, requesting anonymity.
