No space to dump waste: Mayor

Source: The Tribune, New Delhi, Date: June , 2010

The newly elected Mayor has expressed apprehension about the three landfill sites of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) as they are already full beyond their capacity. The Mayor, P.R. Sawhney, said the corporation was facing space crunch and did not have place for disposing garbage. “We are trying to achieve Zero Waste Management level. The emphasis is on developing engineered sanitary landfill sites to keep the environment undisturbed,” said Sawhney. He said one of the biggest challenges being faced by the civic body was to ensure not only the inclusion but also the reduction of the quantum of solid waste reaching the three landfill sites at Bhalasva, Ghazipur and Okhla.
