A new waste management centre was inaugurated in Whitefield on Thursday, under the PPP model.
The infrastructure of the plant has been set up by Capgemini, a consulting, technology and outsourcing services company. This includes the material handling system, shredder and the 3,750 sq ft building. The site has been provided by the BBMP. Saahas, an NGO, will be responsible for bringing in support from nearby residential associations and citizens’ groups.
This project is expected to cater to about 4,000 households in the area and also about 15 bulk waste generators. It will create employment and offer improved livelihood opportunities for the community of waste workers.
BBMP Commissioner Manjunath Prasad, local MLA Arvind Limbavali and Capgemini India CEO Srinivas Kandula were present at the inauguration.
