ORGANIC WASTE MANAGEMENT

Currently, there is no source-segregation and all municipal waste is transported and disposed of at the landfill. Our Programme is supporting Molina in improving their current source-separation project so that organics can be diverted from households and farmers' markets and processed at the anaerobic digester (AD) facility in Molina. The diverted organics will be converted to biogas and upgraded to electricity at the AD facility.
