About 40 tonnes of solid waste are being generated on normal days and it will go up to 60 tonnes during peak days. The general composition of garbage is 91% of organic waste and remaining in-organic waste consists of plastics, glass, metals, paper cardboards, leather and cloth. It is needless to say that the generation of waste on the hill town is on the rise with the pilgrim flow increasing at the rate of 15 per cent, making the task of handling the waste more difficult for the TTD administering the famed Lord Venkateswara temple. Against this backdrop, the TTD as an effective method for handling the waste set up a municipal solid waste (MSW) management plant at Kakulathippa in Tirumala hills in June last year for manufacturing manure from solid waste. The TTD entrusted the operation and maintenance of the plant through na- tional-level bidding to a Bengaluru-based Bright Waste Technologies (BWT) for manufacturing manure from the solid waste as part of its long-term strategy for effective handling of the increasing waste generation on the hills. The firm owned by a woman entrepreneur Alapati Renuka Devi in the last one year handled about 11,000 tonnes of waste for producing the manure, giving much relief to the TTD. “In normal course the yield of manure from the waste is maximum from 8 per cent to 10 per cent but we enhanced it to 15 per cent with mixing the waste with culture to boost up the production with the activation of many types of bacteria with the latest techniques,’’ said BWT chief executive officer Madamanchi Ramesh Babu. Speaking to The Hans India, Ramesh Babu said the process of making manure from waste is elaborate, time consuming and intricate.

According to sources, Standing Committee chairman P Chidambaram, re- viewing implementation of the promises made in AP State Reorganisation Act 2014, wanted to know why so many assurances had remained unfulﬁlled. Expressing displeasure over the way the officials had acted on implementing the bifurcation Act, the Standing Committee chairman referred to Section 108 which laid down that the promises made in the Act should be fulﬁlled within three years. He wanted to know why so much de- lay had taken place with regard to setting up of new educational institutions in both AP and Telangana states, among others. The officials, in reply, told him that the issues relating to railway zone, revenue deﬁcit and according special category status to AP were under the consideration of the government. The committee decided to prepare a report on the way the bifurcation assurances are being implemented in both AP and TS, sources said.
