Tirupur: District Collector M. Mathivanan on Thursday inspected the site identified for a modern compost yard at Iduvai and held discussions with the Corporation officials to explore ways to expedite the project implementation.
Corporation sources said the inspection was following a report in The Hindu on Thursday about the delay in execution of the compost yard project.
Mr. Mathivanan later told The Hindu that instructions had been given to the Corporation Commissioner to take up the project on a priority basis so that the solid waste management programme being implemented in the city would get an impetus.
He also asked the Corporation officials the reason for the delay in the execution of the project though the Corporation had obtained a no-objection certificate from Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board and the Indian Air Force (since the site comes within 20 km radius of the Sulur Air Force Station) almost three years ago.
At present most of the 420 tonnes of solid waste generated from the city is dumped into open pits at Veliyangadu area causing enormous problems to the residents in the nearby areas.
The Collector also inspected the open pits into which the garbage is being dumped.
Corporation Commissioner R. Jayalakshmi and City Health Officer K.R. Jawaharlal, among others, accompanied Mr. Mathivanan.
