City waste to be made assets

The household waste of the Dhaka city would have a better management system soon as the authorities concerned planned putting a technology in place to turn the daily garbage into some kind of treasure.

Department of Environment (DoE) has initiated a process to build two waste management plants which will effectively turn solid waste collected from different parts of the city into compost fertiliser.

The plants will be set up at a cost of 50 million (Tk five crore) under a waste management focused project called "3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle). The DoE will implement the project with support from the climate change trust fund.

"We have already selected the sites and completed soil test for the plants", 3R Project Director Rahid Hossain.
