9 August. The management of biodegradable wastes in Kathmandu Valley is believed to be solved as garbage management is to begin from mid of August this year.
Around 50 ropani of land has been obtained by the Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) at Kirtipur in the Kathmandu district to manage such garbage.
Initially, around 40,000 kilos of recyclable wastes would be collected from eight wards of KMC and those wastes would be turned into manure at this site and be sold.
The team led by KMC mayor Balendra Shah was hunting more prospective sites in and around Chandragiri, Dakshinkali, Nagarjuna, Tarkeshower and Banepa (outside of Valley) to continue the waste management bid.
The sites are available so far for garbage management span from 50 ropanis to 150. The KMC team is still looking for more suitable and less expensive land for the same, said Nabin Manandhar, the spokesperson at the KMC.
