BMC’s plan of Deonar waste-to-energy plant may still take a while but a project by Pali Hill Residents Association (PHRA) will brighten up the Pali Hill area in Bandra. With an aim to create a zero-garbage area, PHRA will transform up to a ton of locally collected garbage into biogas which will light up 68 street lamps. 

The project will be launched on Sunday, May 6. 

Pali Hill area consists of 78 buildings, 23 bungalows and is also residence to celebrated personalities like actor Rishi Kapoor and lyricist Gulzar.

Pali Hill Water Reservoir will use the same technology as the one used in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s electorate area of Varanasi. The work for the project began in April 2016 and since the project needed a considerable amount of investment, the association looked for help under Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

The area has been quite active in creating an eco-friendly locality and has also been separating the dry waste and wet waste for a while now.

Local MLA Ashish Shelar, who enabled the collection of funds under CSR, said that he desired the unique model to be taken into consideration by more areas that are in his assembly constituency.

According to a report in TOI, this is what the MLA said, 

“This is our way of starting the celebrations of the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. We wish to take up many more such projects. I would also demand that the BMC give some form of incentive to those taking up such works.”
