|Trivandrum: Minister for Urban Affairs, Manjalamkuzhi Ali said that the government was planning to introduce seven new power generating waste treatment plants in the state. The Minister made the announcement during the inauguration of the Property Show, being organised by CREDAI Trivandrum at the Subramanium Hall, Trivandrum Club.
“The issue of waste treatment has developed into a state wide crisis. To an extent the non-cooperation of the public has been a major factor for the matter to worsen,” said the Minister in his inaugural address. “The instance of a 'Vilappilshala' happening in Trivandrum was because of a few wrong decisions made. But because of Vilappilshala, people all over the state have begun to blindly protest against any initiative taken for setting up a waste treatment plants.”
The first plant is to come up in Trivandrum, followed by Kochi, Kozhikode, Kannur, Thrissur, Kottayam and Kollam.
CREDAI (Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association India) has been successful in tackling the waste issue of Cochin through the aerobic degradation of organic waste in special waste bins kept in apartments, and through the collection of plastic waste which is used in road construction. CREDAI has plans to introduce a similar project for Trivandrum as well.
The three day Property Show being held at Trivandrum Club feature all
major names in the field of construction and real estate business. It
provides the visitors with information on every aspect on building or
buying a home.
