About 250 tonnes of garbage is generated every day in Greater Noida and dumped in Lakhnawali. More than three lakh tonnes of garbage has been dumped in Lakhnawali so far. On instructions of GNIDA CEO Narendra Bhooshan, it was decided to set up a remediation plant to dispose of this waste, GNIDA said in a statement.

“Brazilian company Lara was selected through tender to set up the remediation plant. This company entered into a contract with the Indian company Avian AMRO for the disposal of waste. Together, both the companies built the plant in Lakhnawali, which started from Tuesday,” it stated.

Machines like power scanner, trommel and weighing bridge are installed in the remediation plant, the statement added. Mr Chandra said the biggest challenge of urbanisation is proper management of waste and Greater Noida has taken a big step in this direction.

It was very important to manage the garbage collected in Lakhnawali. Kitchen waste will be segregated and compost will be used which can be used for gardening. This will eliminate about 50 per cent of the waste. Out of the remaining 50 per cent garbage, the plastic waste will be segregated and sent to the recycling plant, the officer said.

“Then fuel or multi-layer boards will be made from RDF (mainly plastic waste), from which products like chairs, benches, tree guards can be made. The waste from the construction can be used to build roads and fill potholes”, he said.

The plan, he added, is to clean the dump garbage in Lakhnawali in two years. CCTV cameras will also be installed at the plant, so that the authority will be able to know how much garbage has been disposed of and the residents of Greater Noida will also be able to keep an eye on the waste disposal process in the plant through the authority’s website, the GNIDA said.

NDTV – Dettol Banega Swasth India campaign is an extension of the five-year-old Banega Swachh India initiative helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan. It aims to spread awareness about critical health issues facing the country. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (WaterSanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign highlights the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children to prevent maternal and child mortality, fight malnutrition, stunting, wasting, anaemia and disease prevention through vaccines. Importance of programmes like Public Distribution System (PDS), Mid-day Meal Scheme, POSHAN Abhiyan and the role of Aganwadis and ASHA workers are also covered. Only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and become a Swasth or healthy India. The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollutionwaste managementplastic banmanual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene
