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.

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.
