  • The city Corporation will in December organise a national seminar on decentralised waste management, highlighting the civic body’s successful interventions in this regard over the past few years.
  • The city Corporation had made the switch to decentralised waste management after the closure of the centralised waste treatment plant at Vilappilsala in 2011, following protests.
  • Since then, the civic body has introduced several waste management at source initiatives including kitchen bins, aerobic bins, material recovery facilities and periodic collection of different kinds of waste for recycling purposes.
