KATHMANDU: The Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) is looking for a temporary dumping site after it failed to complete the construction of its permanent dumping site within the stipulated time.

The KMC had been constructing its dumping site at Bancharedanda as the present dumping site at Sisdol is almost filled prompting KMC to search for a temporary dumping site to manage the waste generated in the Kathmandu Valley.

Although the KMC had continued with the construction work on the permanent dumping site despite of the lockdown announced by the government to contain global pandemic of COVID-19, the construction could not be completed.

The construction deadline was mid-July, which is unlikely to be met.

The permanent dumping site is being constructed at Bancharedanda on the border between Nuwakot and Dhanding districts on an area of 1,792 ropanis.

Around one thousand forty five metric tons of waste is produced in the Kathmandu Valley every day.
