"As waste management is a common problem, Chandragiri Municipality is committed to support and collaborate with KMC on its policy and initiative for the same. We have adopted a policy to manage the waste generated within the municipal territory," Mayor Giri said. 

Informing that the municipality has been incentivizing the private sector to transform the perishable waste into compost fertilizer, he stressed the need for an integrated policy and collaboration among all the municipalities in Kathmandu Valley to deal with waste management problem. 

The KMC has been providing a budget of Rs 10 million to 18 municipalities in the Kathmandu Valley each year.
