Plant­ing tree, com­post pit com­pul­sory

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - METRO - BY REKHA THARANGANI FON­SEKA

The Mo­ratuwa Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil would make it com­pul­sory to plant a use­ful plant or tree and al­lo­cate a place for com­post mak­ing when pass­ing new build­ing plans, Mo­ratuwa Mayor Sa­man Lal Fer­nando said.

This is in ad­di­tion to the cesspit and the pit through which waste­water was sent.

Speak­ing at the monthly com­mit­tee meet­ing, the Mayor said this sys­tem had been pro­cessed with the idea of pro­tect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment and start­ing waste man­age­ment within the house premises go­ing along with the Mo­ratuwa City De­vel­op­ment Plan.

He said that the plant­ing of trees should be made com­pul­sory for hous­ing plans.

The Mayor said that the No­tices will be is­sued in the near fu­ture to res­i­dents who had al­ready ob­tained ap­proval for hous­ing plans.

“This will def­i­nitely be im­ple­mented when ap­prov­ing hous­ing plans in the fu­ture,” he said.

He said that this would be im­ple­mented with the idea of mak­ing Mo­ratuwa City an ecofriendl­y town, which man­ages waste dis­posal prop­erly.
