Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka, which generates some 6,000 tonnes of garbage every day, is expected to see a sea change in garbage disposal once the country’s first proposed waste-energy plant in Aminbazar goes into operation.
“No garbage will be seen lying indiscriminately in the city once the proposed waste-energy plant in Aminbazar starts generating electricity. When the plant is set up, it’ll require 3,000 metric tonnes of garbage a day. If a power plant collects so much garbage, there’ll be no more waste everywhere in the city,” said Local Government, Rural Development (LGRD) and Cooperatives Minister Md Tazul Islam.
The LGRD Minister made the remarks while visiting Aminbazar Dumping Station and Gabtoli Mechanical Workshop in Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC).
Describing the waste-to-energy plant as his dream project, Tazul Islam warned that no irregularity and corruption will be tolerated in the project.
