Dibrugarh Municipality use to collect the Garbage from Collection point/ Dustbin from 6 AM and dispose the same at Garamur Dumping Ground, 3 Km away from the city. The present system of disposal is open land filling. A research work has been undertaken with Regional Research Laboratory, to find out a suitable technology for disposing the garbage scientifically with minimum expenditure. Up till now no treatment plant could be set up for financial constraint of the board. It is estimated that, to establish solid waste plant, a sum of Rs.2.90 corers will be required to implement the Honorable Supreme Court’s order on the P.I.L. filed by the Almita H Patel Consequent upon non enforcement of the Bajaj Committee recommendation, that attempted to stem the cause of plague that etched dark chapter in the history of Surat in Gujrat.
