In order to deal with the problem of waste particles generated in Meghalaya, Chief Minister Conrad Sagma is all set to emulate the Alappuzha model to recycle waste in the state. The pilot waste segregation system will be set in Shillong and Tura.

In order to understand the unique waste management model Urban Affairs Minister Hamletson Dohling, PHE Minister Samlin Malgniang and Government Chief Whip Agatha K.

“Urban Affairs Minister Hamletson Dohling, PHE Minister Samlin Malgniang and Govt Chief Whip Agatha K. Sangma visited #Alappuzha town in #Kerala to understand the unique waste management model. #Shillong and #Tura will soon set up a pilot waste segregation system’, CM Sangma tweeted.

Earlier, during the Assembly session, Sangma referred to Alappuzha district in Kerala to drive home the point that garbage management is the need of the hour in Meghalaya.

Later, he also showed a video in his mobile to the reporters on how the Kerala town manages garbage.

Like Shillong, Alappuzha too had a dumping ground around five years ago but the new model of door to door method of managing garbage changed the scene.

Earlier, Alappuzha, located close to the sea was an eyesore for visitors as several parts of the area were filled with garbage and plastic materials.

The waste management process was done at the household levels and bio-manure was produced from domestic waste with the help of municipality workers.

The plastic waste is collected and used for construction of road after it is recycled by the Clean Kerala Company.
