Zero Waste Policy for Cleaner City Mooted

Source: Indian Express, Date: , 2014

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said the Capital needed to adopt a ‘zero’ waste policy and make sanitation a mass campaign in order to become a more cleaner city. Speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Management project of Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) here on Saturday, he said special attention also needs to be paid to liquid and electronic waste generated and new policies should be put in place to deal with those accordingly. “As the Capital is the face of the State, sanitation and civic amenities should be of international standards. BMC should adopt best practices and inspire other Urban Local Bodies (ULB) to do the same,” Naveen said. The MSW management project will treat the solid waste generated under BMC and Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) at a treatment facility in Bhuasuni.
