The Kolkata Municipal Corporation has adopted a modernization project for Dhapa dumping ground as prodded by National Green Tribunal. Accordingly, the chairman of the KMC Board of Administrators (BoA) Firhad Hakim on Friday inaugurated a plastic processing plant at Dhapa dumping ground that will make best use of deposited plastics in the wastes and create furniture and other household products.
According to a KMC solid waste management department official, the new plant has a capacity to take 20 tonnes of waste plastic materials and turn it into utility items.
“On an experimental basis, the plant has already started producing plastic chairs, doors, dolls among other utility items. We will need to make sure that the plant gets raw materials,” a KMC official said. The KMC has handed over the work of bio-mining to a private firm for three years.
