Site for construction waste recycling plant identified in Trichy

Trichy Corporation has identified a site in Panjapur to establish a construction and demolition (C&D) waste recycling plant for processing construction debris that is presently being dumped in vacant plots and waterbodies.

The corporation on Saturday floated a request for proposal (RFP) for collection, transportation, processing and management of construction and demolition waste under public-private partnership (PPP) model.

As per the plan, the plant will accept the construction debris for a price and recycle the same into flooring tiles and pavement blocks, and sell them. A private organisation with expertise in operating the plant will be identified. Two acres of land is okayed near Panjapur sewage treatment plant (STP).

“We have carried out a study through which we inferred a significant demand for the construction debris recycling plant. Design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT) model is considered,” a senior corporation official said.

Srirangam and K Abishekapuram zones that have a significant number of decades-old buildings were identified as potential localities to generate construction waste.

“The absence of C&D plant was a blot in Trichy’s cleanliness accolades which robbed the city’s chances of securing top 10 ranks in cleanliness surveys. The facility will safeguard water bodies from pollution,” the official added.

A suitable private player will be identified within the next two months to materialise the proposal.
