Two waste management plants being built in Dhaka

UNB

The household waste of the capital city Dhaka would have a better management system soon as the authorities concerned planned putting a technology in place to turn the daily garbage into some kind of treasure, reports UNB. Department of Environment (DoE) has initiated a process to build two waste management plants which will effectively turn solid waste collected from different parts of the capital city into compost fertiliser.
The plants will be set up at a cost of Taka five crore under a waste management focused project called “3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle).
The DoE will implement the project with support from the climate change trust fund. “We have already selected the sites and completed soil test for the plants”, 3R Project Director Rahid Hossain told BSS. He said one of the plants will be in Matuail under Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) and the other one will be in Amin Bazar under Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC). Each of the plants will produce 20 tonnes composed fertiliser per day from solid waste.
“We are hopeful about producing compost fertiliser from these plants by early next year,” Hossain said.
He said these plants would be a breakthrough towards fulfilling the present government’s commitment of establishing a sound solid waste management system in the capital city through making waste into assets.
After piloting the two projects, DoE will replicate the system across the country to manage waste efficiently for protecting environment, said the project director.
He said under the 3R project, the DoE would also build four waste transfer stations, two in Dhaka North City Corporation and two in Dhaka South City Corporation.
The DoE is also implementing another project titled “Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)” to set up waste-based compost fertiliser plants in all 64 districts. Under the project, compost plants had already been set up in Rangpur, Mymensingh, Narayanganj and Cox’s Bazar, Hossain added.
