VISAKHAPATNAM:  GVMC commissioner M Hari Narayanan on Tuesday announced that as per the government’s directives, the civic body would produce bio-fertiliser and compost from the waste collected from the households of the city. Very soon, a waste-to-energy plant would be sett up in the GVMC limits, the civic chief told the media here on Tuesday.


Elaborating on the ‘compost from waste’ programme, the commissioner said that in view of the ‘World Environment Day’ on June 5, the GVMC had decided to start the eco-friendly project in a comprehensive way. 


“From May 15, we are going to initiate collecting household waste in separate pouches -wet and dry waste and it will be implemented in the entire GVMC limits in phases,” said the commissioner. 


He requested the citizens to cooperate with the GVMC in getting and segregating the wet and dry waste materials, which might be a great help to the GVMC to achieve its goal regarding total sanitation. 
To a query, Hari Narayanan said that ranks of the latest Swachh Survekshan will be announced in Delhi on May 4. 


“Due to the implementation of effective summer water supply plan, we are able to give sufficient water to the denizens and in future we will follow the same,” the commissioner explained. 
Varma, the additional commissioner (Finance) and Ravindra, the deputy commissioner (Revenue), were present.
