Nagpur’s smart city project is bringing up another venture in the city as Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has decided to have ten garbage transfer stations, one in each zone to keep the outgoing flow of garbage smooth and hassle-free. This project is aimed to have a cost of around 40 crores with which the NMC will be making efforts to make Nagpur a zero garbage city.
According to the previous plans, NMC is already 11 years late as the door to door collection of trash was launched through Kanak Resources Management Ltd (KRML) back in 2008. The civic body along with health division NMC was supposed to launch the plan with an allotted land of 4,000 sq mt lands specially dedicated to KRML for developing garbage transfer stations.
Municipal Commissioner, Abhijit Bangar during a conference said “ we have identified the 10 locations and 2 new garbage operators are also involved along with KRML. Once the stations are ready to function the dumping of garbage will be started. Garbage will be compressed and loaded in vehicles having a capacity of over 16 tonnes” .
