The City Corporation has asked all wards to find space for source-level waste management by mid-December.  Discussions resumed in the circle (comprising four wards) levels in the Corporation on Monday in this regard.

 On Monday, discussions were held in the presence of health officials and councillors at Palayam and Jagathy circles. “More than half of the wards are yet to provide space for establishing a system to manage waste at source level,” said health standing committee chairperson S Pushpalatha. Now, the Corporation is providing a 75-per cent subsidy for homes to establish biogas plants.
