Nagpur Municipal Corp to collect and reuse C&D waste

The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) will collect and reuse construction and demolition (C&D) waste generated across the city every day.

Appointing a private operator for the purpose has been completed in just two days, against the usual 30-45 days.

Municipal Commissioner Radhakrishnan B told the media that the Letter of Intent (LoI) had been issued to Ramky Enviro Engineers Limited. The operator will have to develop a C&D waste recycling plant in a year, though the target is six months.

He said that the operator would arrange infrastructure to collect the C&D waste, estimated to be 150-200 metric tonnes (mt) daily.

Besides C&D waste recycling, the project will also ensure that no debris lies by the roadside, open spaces and in residential localities, giving a smarter and cleaner look to the city, which will improve its ranking in Swachh Bharat Mission.

The operator must introduce a helpline number where citizens can call to get their C&D waste lifted. The operator will have the right to recover charges from bulk waste generators like construction builders.

Under the plan, the operator will develop a recycling plant in five acres of land allotted in the Bhandewadi dumping yard to produce sand, paver blocks, sculptures, road-divider material, bricks, gravel and other usable items, and recover the part of the investment, and operation and maintenance (O&M) cost. NMC will pay Rs 414 per mt to the operator.

The civic body will bear less than Rs 20 lakh per month. Earlier, Kanak Resources Management Limited was allowed to collect and transport C&D waste to the Bhandewadi dumping yard. The firm used to transport 50-60 mt waste daily and charge Rs 1,436 per mt, excluding the processing charges.

Presently, Ramky Enviro will collect and reuse the C&D waste, and NMC will bear only Rs 414 per mt.
