The Aligarh Municipal Corporation has collaborated with a waste management company to create eco-friendly bricks made of garbage, cement and concrete.
The proposal had been presented to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath by A2Z Waste Management Private Limited in 2017.
Project Head Sam Singh said, “Bricks prepared in our plant in Meerut have been used in Lucknow and Gurgaon, with the recent passing of the proposal in the municipal board, this magic bricks will be used in more areas now. A single brick weighs 17 kilogram and is worth Rs 35.”
Municipal Commissioner Satya Prakash Patel informed, “These bricks are eco-friendly. Through this we are 100 percent utilizing the waste. We will be awarded at Swachh Survekshan-2018 Awards in Indore for our efforts”.
Efforts are being made to decrease the weight of the bricks in order to achieve superior quality.
