IIT proposes plan to curb dump fires by capturing methane 6.2.2016 Asian Age: Mumbai
To tackle the problem of chronic fires at Deonar dumping ground, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay has proposed a plan to capture methane gas, which is generated at the dump yard from the piles of trash causing the fires. The IIT experts submitted the technical proposal for methane gas capture at Deonar dumping ground to civic chief Ajoy Mehta, who has agreed to implement the project. “We will be drawing the plan to capture the methane gas from the dump yard as per the IIT proposal,” said Mr Mehta.

IPS officer to probe Mumbai fire 5.2.2016 deccanherald.com
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has ordered a probe by an officer of the rank of Additional Commissioner of Police into the incident of fire at the Deonar dumping ground — where sabotage was suspected — which has resulted in smoke and poisonous gas enveloping the city. ACP (East Region) Manoj Lohiya has been asked to carry out the probe. An FIR has already been registered against unknown persons. The blanket of smoke was so thick that it was captured by satellites of Nasa. The smoke and gases have caused breathing problems for several people. Since there are just a few days remaining for the Make in India mega event in Mumbai which would be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the chief minister is regularly in touch with Municipal Commissioner Ajoy Mehta and Police Commissioner Datta Padsalgikar to ensure that the fire is doused and the reasons are found. The Deonar dumping ground, from the year 1927, has been one of the biggest landfills of the country. The dumping ...

Delhi suffers as AAP ministers pose while lifting garbage: BJP 2.2.2016 deccanherald.com
Politics over the ongoing strike by municipal employees peaked with the BJP, which controls the civic agencies, alleging that the AAP government ministers were misleading people while posing for photographs near garbage dumps. Alleging fudging of figures on garbage lifting by the Delhi government trucks, Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay also blamed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for staying away from the city while Delhiites were suffering due to the civic agitation. "Yesterday, people saw another theatrical show with Delhi ministers posing for photographs while lifting of garbage. But they can no more fool the citizens of Delhi," he said. Ministers and agencies of the Delhi government and AAP leaders have hit the streets for lifting garbage which is lying unattended on roads and community bins ever since civic workers launched their agitation six days ago to demand timely payment of salary. The BJP workers also have been protesting against the Kejriwal government's reluctance to release municipal funds ...
