City residents need not bother to segregate waste generated at their homes when the new waste treatment plant at Brahmapuram becomes operational.

Going by the project report of the plant prepared by Kerala Industrial and Technology Consultancy Organisation (KITCO), all sorts of municipal waste, including plastic refuse and wood, would go into the plant to generate power. The local body can also end the practice of engaging its workers to segregate the waste into bio-degradable and non-degradable ones before packing them off to the plant.
