Residents of Sector 26 are expected to soon get a solid waste treatment plant that can turn 500kg of waste into manure every day.

They said they were inspired by the 100kg waste treatment plant set up in Club 26 and also urged others to follow suit in going green. The club members said they give their kitchen and horticulture waste and receive free manure for their plants.

On July 20, members of the Sector 26 residents’ welfare association met the senior officials of Noida authority to get a solid waste treatment plant installed. The authority agreed to help the residents in the process.

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has also issued directions against spilling garbage and waste material.

“There is a subsidy of 75% on the installation of a solid waste treatment plant. Noida authority officials have been very helpful in this regard. The plant will be installed soon and it will have a capacity of turning 500kg of waste into manure per day,” said Govind Sharma, president of RWA, Sector 26.

“We are ready to bear the remaining 25% of the expenses to install the plant. Residents are looking forward to getting this system installed. We want our area to become clean,” he said.

The president of Club 26 is encouraging club members to get such a plant installed to utilise their waste in a constructive manner.

“At present, we are using our kitchen waste and we ask our members to bring their waste too, whenever there is a possibility. They will be getting free manure. I wanted to take an initiative to contribute towards improving our environment,” Rakesh Khosla, president, Club 26, said.

“Installing such plants will encourage all of us to keep our surroundings clean. We have to stop dumping garbage on the roads. We have to think about such actions and its consequences. These plants will help us in getting good fertiliser for our plants as well,” Shikha Verma of Sector 26 said.

The government has been encouraging citizens and organisations to get such plants installed to reduce garbage dumping and also to reuse kitchen and horticulture waste.
