As a part of the Greater Chennai Corporation’s (GCC) initiative to make the city garbage-free and reduce the amount of waste being carted to the city’s landfills, it has released a list of 21 companies that have been granted authorisation to recycle and process biodegradable (wet) waste and solid (dry) waste generated in Chennai.

The authorisation, which was given on July 24, is valid for one year. The companies will process the garbage generated by bulk waste generators. Bulk waste generators are households, societies institutions, restaurants, that generate more than 100 kg of waste a day.

The GCC has also laid down guidelines for bulk waste generators. The cost of the recycling services will be borne by the bulk waste generators and the onus is on the client and the company to agree upon a suitable price.

Moreover, the companies have to adhere to norms laid down by the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board and Central Pollution Control Board regarding solid waste management. In case of doubts, bulk waste generators can seek the assistance of GCC Zonal Field Officers.

The GCC has authorised 18 companies to provide on-site composting and processing services of biodegradable waste in the city.
