Civic body initiative for decentralization of waste management
Chennai mapping its waste infrastructure
Citizen Consumer Civic Action Group (CAG), which works with GCC as part of Zero Waste Chennai initiative, has come up with maps that mark waste-management facilities within Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC) limits.
Zero Waste Chennai Project aims to cover all the 15 zones in the city - from Trivotriyur to Sozhinganallur.
It seeks to promote maximum recovery of materials and phasing out of materials that cannot be recycled.
The maps identifies micro-composting centres (MCCs), which are meant for collecting and composting biodegradable discards; and material recovery facilities (MRFs), which are centres where non-compostable solid waste can be temporarily stored.
