Rajarhat’s construction waste recovery plant to begin work in April

The construction waste recovery facility in Rajarhat is nearing completion. As per a Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) official, the plant is likely to begin its work in April.

It will have the capacity to manage 500 tonnes of waste in a day. The facility will crush construction wastes into aggregates that can then be mixed with concrete to pave roads.

Construction waste contains head break concrete blocks of pile caps and broken tiles that are not biodegradable. Instead of disposing of, they can be used for paving driveways. A 5-acre land has been prepared for the setting up of a mechanical facility for construction waste recovery and is in the final stage of establishment.

The civic body will lift wastes from smaller residential projects and instead of dumping them in landfills, the wastes will be conducted in this unit in Rajarhat. Larger projects, each of which will produce 20 tonnes or more wastes in a day, will require installing a plant at the construction site.

A KMC solid waste management department authority told the media that the decision to install the construction waste recovery facility in Rajarhat was taken after the civic body was provided 5- acre land by Hidco. An agreement was signed with a private company that would install a construction waste recovery plant and unit for 10 years.

They are banking on this project for a solution to construction waste issues. If this model becomes successful, they may be required to plan another such facility in the Garden Reach area. They have begun searching for suitable land for this purpose.
