The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has decided to take steps to convert leftover food from expressway food malls into manure, reported Mid-Day.
The corporation will reuse the tons of food generated at these malls in an eco-friendly way. It aims to set up solid waste management and treatment plants that would convert wet waste into manure.
The MSRDC has invited tenders "for the appointment of a contractor for supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the plants", senior MSRDC officials told Mid-Day.
On their part, the food plaza owners will be asked to separate their waste – the dry waste will be sent to the nearest landfill and the wet waste will be turned into compost.
