Construction waste to be recycled now

Source: The Times of India, Date: , 2010

After ensuring the fact that the city has a functional solid waste management system in place, the municipal corporation is planning to have a construction and demolition waste recycling plant.

There is so much construction activity taking place in Gurgaon but there is no place to dump the malba. The frenzied pace of the construction and renovation work will continue for at least for the next five years and therefore we felt the need to have a construction and demolition waste processor. We are in touch with IL&FS who are running one such plant in Delhi to build one or us, said Rajesh Khullar, municipal commissioner.

They have asked us for a five acre land to build that plant; we have shortlisted three places with Bandhwari and Kherki Majra being two of them. The project cost is around Rs 8 lakhs and as soon as we hand over the land to the private player, the plant will be ready in five months. Among other things we plan to have tiles generated from the waste, he added.
