Pune Municipal Commissioner has announced the creation of a special site for dumping construction debris from the city on Built Operate and Transfer (BOT) basis.
The municipal commissioner presented the annual budget for the year 2014-15 to the Standing Committee with various plans in it. He has made a budgetary provision of Rs 66.07 crore for the solid waste management department.
The commissioner said that the debris generation in the city is high due to redevelopment and construction activity. As of now, there is no site in the city to dump the construction debris, which includes concrete, bricks, cement plaster and iron rods.
Municipal Commissioner has decided to clean the city with the help of machines. These machines will be used for road sweeping and open plots to improve the quality of sweeping. This will be done in the next fiscal.
