The officials are ecstatic over Ghaziabad’s meteoric rise in the rankings of cleanliness survey. Now, they have started works to make the city free of garbage houses just like it happened in Indore. Instead, garbage transfer centers will be made in the city. In the first phase, ten garbage transfer centers will be made at the cost of Rs 12 crore.
Ghaziabad was at 351 position in cleanliness survey last year. However, it climbed many places to reach 36 position this year.
CP Singh, Municipal Commissioner, said, “Ghaziabad generates more than 1,000 metric tonnes of garbage every day. After the door to door collection, they are kept at the garbage houses. Then, the garbage is taken to dumping grounds in vehicles. Now, this process will soon become a thing of past.”
“To make the city free of garbage houses in a year, the Municipal Corporation has started work through modern mechanism. There are five zones in the area. Two garbage transfer centers will be made in each of the zones. In the Vasundhara zone, the construction of first garbage transfer center has already been started. Soon, it will become ready to use,” said Singh.
Singh said, “After door to door collection, the vehicles will take the garbage directly to garbage transfer centers. Then, the garbage will be kept in the containers where it will be compressed by application of pressure. Later, big vehicles will take compressed garbage to waste to energy plant.”
With the elimination of garbage houses, the city will become free of foul smells. In the first phase, ten garbage transfer centers will be made. Later, the number of garbage transfer centers will be increased. All the 1,223 garbage houses in the city will be destroyed.
With such kinds of initiatives, the city of Ghaziabad will certainly witness big progress in “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.” The city will further make progress in the rankings of cleanliness survey.TAGS: Ceanliness survey / Garbage houses in Ghaziabad / Garbage transfer center / Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation / Municipal Commissioner CP Singh / Ghaziabad news
