City produces 300 tonnes of solid waste daily

Statistics from the NCD Commission reveal that approximately 300 tonnes of solid waste are received daily at the city’s only landfill at Baruni.

In 2015-2016, NCD produced approximately 230,000 tonnes of waste.

About half of this waste comes from households, just over a quarter is commercial and industrial waste and the remainder is markets and public places.

NCD spends close to eight percent of its annual operating budget on managing solid waste indicate that this amount will continue to rise.
