Bhubaneswar, Nov 29: Around 18,000 tonne waste was processed at the the temporary transit station (TTS) near Sainik School in the last 15 days, said the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC).
The BMC on Tuesday announced a revised target of four months to flatten the garbage hill at the TTS near Sainik School that had earlier sought seven months time for the same.
Three machines, two sets of trommels and one terex machine are engaged now to process the waste. Another terex machine, capable of processing 50 to 60 tonne waste per hour, has been brought to the site, said BMC commissioner Vijay Amruta Kulange.
The three-shift work for waste processing at the waste handling site along with the new machine will help BMC in reaching the target of processing 2,000 tonne waste a day.
