Mechanical separator to be set up near Phagwara garbage dump

Kapurthala Deputy Commissioner (DC) Vishesh Sarangal told the media that a Mechanical Separator had been planned to install at the garbage dump near Palahi village in Phagwara, and its infrastructure has been constructed.

He said that after installing the separator, segregation of the old waste dumped at the site for over 18 years, including scrap items, compostable waste, etc., would be separated for proper disposal and reduce the waste heaps.

He added that there were around 14 lakh metric tonnes (MT) of waste, of which 4 lakh MT would be separated by the machine and properly disposed of in 1.5 years.

With Municipal Commissioner (MC), Dr Nayan Jassal, Sarangal reviewed the efforts to dispose of the garbage at the dumping site.

The DC said the administration and the Municipal Corporation were working jointly on this project to make it a success.

He said regular spraying was also being arranged near the garbage dumping area to control the stink. An employee had been posted at the garbage dump to call the fire brigade in case of any fire accidents. A tubewell was also being installed at the garbage dump to ensure daily water spraying to prevent fire.

He urged the MC to monitor the proper disposal of garbage at the garbage dump site and a report to be sent to this office every week.
