Report by the state of Madhya Pradesh on solid waste management, 06/11/2020

Quarterly report by the state of Madhya Pradesh in Original Application No. 606/2018 in compliance to the National Green Tribunal order in the matter of Municipal Solid Waste Management Vs State of Madhya Pradesh & Others.

The matter related to compliance of Municipal Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016. The report of November 6, 2020 was uploaded to the NGT site of November 24, 2020.

The cluster-based integrated Solid Waste Management model adopted by the state is working in 7 clusters and in various stages of implementation. This covers a total of 110 urban local bodies (ULB). Out of these 7 clusters, 4 clusters are waste to compost (Sagar, Katni, Chhatarpur and Singrauli) and 3 clusters are waste to energy (Jabalpur, Rewa and Gwalior).

The Urban Administration Department has reviewed and discussed the various feasible options with the sector experts and is rethinking to adopt the mixed approach of cluster based 'Integrated Solid Waste Management' (ISWM) model with 'Decentralized Solid Waste Management' (SWM) projects in remaining 268 ULBs.

The mixed approach would help Madhya Pradesh to ensure effective implementation of SWM Rules, 2016 across all the ULBs. Decentralized solid waste management model with processing facilities at ULB level is already working in Ujjain city which has a waste to compost facility for processing 190 tonnes per day (TPD) of waste, the report said.
