EDMC, NHAI, sign MoU for Ghazipur landfill site project
Work on use of solid waste from Ghazipur landfill site in east Delhi, in the construction of Delhi-Meerut Expressway, a section of NH-24, will begin soon, as an MoU was signed here by multiple agencies in this regard.

East Delhi Municipal Commissioner Mohanjeet Singh said the MoU has been signed by the East Delhi Municipal Corporation, Union Ministry of Urban Development, Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways and National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) for reclamation of the landfill site and use of the municipal solid waste for construction purposes.

All parties have agreed for mining, excavation and collection of the waste located at the dumpsite covering an area of about 29.62 hectares, he said.

The waste collected would be segregation and processed into material that can be used by the NHAI in the construction of NH-24 expansion project or other National Highways, the EDMC said in a statement.

He said the capacity of Ghazipur landfill site to accept municipal waste was exhausted in the year 2002 and now it stands about 50 m above the ground level, posing a health hazard.

Singh said EDMC would dispose off recovered materials which can't be used for road construction.

"EDMC would also collect the leachate generated from the project on a daily basis and transport it for its processing and disposal to sewage plant located at Ghazipur. After the completion of the project, NHAI will return the vacant Ghazipur dumpsite area to EDMC." he added, "This project is being initiated in order to implement the new sold waste management rules which aims at scientific and harmless removal, transport and reuse/disposal of municipal solid waste generated within its jurisdiction," Singh said.
