The idea is to transform into compost household waste sent to the five transfer stations located throughout the country. "If we can make compost at La Chaumiere, La Brasserie, Roche Bois, The Laura and d'Australia- Mare, we will not need to transfer the waste to landfill Chicose-Mare."
"We will save in terms of transport costs and roasting. In addition, the country will not import as much fertilizer to fertilize the fields of vegetables, flowers and others," the Minister told the Le Matinal. Hervé Aimée said that the project is practical because there is enough waste being transported to the only landfill in the country which is currently at Mare Chicose.
According to available statistics, over 420 000 tonnes of waste are transported annually.
"Based on our analysis, the landfill Mare Chicose will reach saturation in the course of this year. So we must find alternative ways to store the waste. And then he must be very careful because it does not let the solutions arising from waste into the soil because they can cause damage to aquifers," said Hervé Aimée.
The Minister explained that today's appropriate value the government currently is giving contracts to the private sector to manage the landfill Mare Chicose that in the near future, will have to make compost. "According to my information, the work of composting should begin in March or April. Some 120 000 tonnes of waste may pass through the compaction process", said the Minister.
The ability to export compost is also being calculated, said the Minister Herve Aimee. According to a research provided by the Department of Local Government, over 90% of household waste can be used for this purpose. Between 10-15% of waste can be used.
Now three private companies have expressed keen interest in composting. They intend to transform this waste into natural fertilizer for food crops.
"Our goal is not to impose anything on these companies be motivated to get into the field.mWe have no intention to impose a kind of tax on them on the sale of these fertilizers.
The goal is to find a solution to the problem of saturation of Mare Chicose and simultaneously prevent the environment being polluted through the emission of harmful gases from the landfill Chicose Mare", said Minister of Regional Administration.
