Boost to Cleaner and Greener Mysuru
Mysuru currently produces nearly 450 MT (metric tons) of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) per day. Current handling capacity stands at 245 TPD (Tons per day), which includes 45 MT from the 9 Zero waste management plants, each of 5 TPD, and a 150-200 MT Vidyaranyapuram composting plant. With the daily waste production far exceeding the handling capacity, there is a pile-up of 205 TPD of MSW at dump yards located in the vicinity of residential areas. The pile-up is causing severe environmental issues like air & groundwater pollution. By 2030 Mysuru is projected to produce 800 TPD of MSW.
To address the immediate capacity shortfall of 205 TPD, MCC has proposed to develop two MSW management plants with a combined processing capacity of 350 TPD. The two plants are to come up at Rayanakere and Kesare, each with 150 & 200 TPD capacities respectively.
Kesare and Rayanakere MSW plants require 25 & 7 acres of land respectively. Kesare MSW will come up next to the existing Kesare STP near Mysuru-Bengaluru NH 275-ORR junction. Likewise, Rayanakere MSW is planned next to Rayanakere STP unit close to HD Kote road. Both the projects shall come up on government-owned land.
Construction of MSW treatment facility at Rayanakere & Kesare (with disposal facility) by @mysurucitycorp has received environmental clearance. Rayanakere would entail 14 crore investment & Kesare around 24 crore. Environmental clearance obtained on April 2 2018. #Mysore #Mysuru— Mysuru Infrastructure (@Mysuru_Infra) April 7, 2018
Environmental clearance was obtained from the State Environment Impact Assessment Authority in April 2018.
Member of Parliament Shri Pratap Simha had earmarked 54 crores under Swachh Bharat Mission for early realisation of the projects in 2017.
Going forward, MCC has invited bids for Comprehensive development of 200 TPD Solid Waste Management Plant in Kesare & 150 TPD SWM in Rayankere at an estimated cost of 11.32 crore & 9.7 crores respectively. Tendering process is currently underway.
