Shri Bhupesh Chaudary, IAS, Deputy Commissioner, handed over Bio-digester to LAD,MADC after an MoU was duly signed by DC and Shri.N.Zakhai,CEM,MADC.
This bio-digester was procured by Shri Bhupesh Chaudhury, IAS, from the CSR of Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) and 19 lakhs were spent for the installation of this Bio-digester. Shri Bhupesh Chaudhury had also procured two vehicles from BPCL for collection/carrying of organic waste and handed over it to the LAD, MADC earlier. A total of Rs.37 lacs for organic waste management within Siaha town in the form of Bio-digester and 2 vehicles was obtained from BPCL's CSR.
In his inaugural speech, Shri Bhupesh chaudhury, IAS, Deputy Commissioner Siaha, stressed that this bio-digester mechanism is the first installation of its kind in the entire Mizoram State, adding that, this would not only pave way towards hygienic environment but also towards the enhancement of our moral values. The success of this project lies in the cooperation of Gov't departments,all the NGOs, VCs and general public. Segregation of waste must start at sources, therefore every household need to keep a separate garbage bin of Organic and non organic waste, before disposting it to the garbage collector vehicles. After wet and dry waste separation was done successfully, every household must inspire to have a separate plastic and non plastic bin as well; so that we can pray to CSR of big company for plastic shredder for recycle. Let's make 3 R's: Reduce, Reuse and Recycled be our mantra for Waste management of Siaha district.The Deputy Commissioner invited the assembly to join their hands together in making our District a role model in cleanliness through our waste manangement for the entire Mizoram state.
