The Central Environmental Authority (CEA) is hoping to construct four large-scale sanitary landfills across the country as a measure to resolve the solid waste issue.

CEA Deputy Director General (Waste Management) Eng. J. M. U. Indraratne said the project would be initiated with funds from the Korean Government obtained as a concessionary loan.

The four sanitary landfills are to be constructed at Keerimale in Jaffna, Keerakkulama in Anuradhapura, Meegaswewa in Polonnaruwa and Monrovia Estate in Galle with the CEA having already carried out the preliminary studies and the Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR) prepared for the four sanitary landfills.

Mr. Indraratne said the cost of constructing the four landfills had not been calculated as yet but the CEA hoped to award the contract before March next year. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    CEA is the watch dog for environment. It should not get involved in construction, as it would lose the impartiality. Let some others do the construction - say Municipal Council or Provincial Council, and look after the environmental safeguards.

    Good news. Have you considered making some of the food and organic waste into compost. This would reduce the need to import fertiliser.Maurice from Melbourne
