Landfill stations in Dhaka being expanded: Minister

The government is expanding the landfill stations of Dhaka city as the garbage management of this mega city is becoming a big challenge day by day. "The wastes of Dhaka city are increasing enormously as their nature is also changing.

It has become a challenge for us for managing these huge wastes," said Local Government Division Minister Tajul Islamsaid while responding to a tabled written question from ruling party MP of Chittagong M Abdul Latif.

The minister said currently the wastes produced in Dhaka North City Corporation are being dumped at Aminbazar landfill while the garbage of Dhaka South City Corporation is at Matuail Sanitary landfill.

As there is no adequate space in these two landfills, a project titled 'Matuail Sanitary Landfill Expansion and Land Development' at a cost of Tk 724.49 crore is under implementation, he said.

Another project titled 'Aminbazar Landfill Expansion and Modernisation' worth Tk 826.80 crore has been prepared.

Yet another project proposal has been prepared to set up a new modern landfill station on 118 acres of land in the expanded area of Dhaka North City Corporation, Nasirabad. "Hopefully, these projects will be approved," he said.

Bangladesh is a densely populated country where there is scarcity of land, he said adding, "So, instead of creating landfills, steps have to be taken to implement environment-friendly project 'Waste to Energy'," he said.
