deputy commissioner of Rajkot Municipal Corporation ( rmc ) Pareshbhai Vyas has said that a solid waste processing plant costing over Rs 5 crore will be set up at Nakrawadi village. He said this at a meeting of chairpersons of the health and sanitation departments in Rajkot.
The rmc has come in for a lot of criticism over the delay in creating a special solid waste management department. Despite claims made by rmc officials that a system of house-to-house garbage collection had been started in the city, their own records show that only five per cent of the city has been covered under the new system.
