Recycling of wooden waste

DMRC generates considerable quantity of wood waste from packing material of heavy machinery/equipments of Rolling Stock. Till 2015, this waste was sold to resellers for nominal price. However, in order to make better use of this waste, DMRC established a carpentry workshop at Sarita Vihar depot on a pilot basis.

So far, 124 cubic feet of wood waste has been re-used to make benches, stool, park bench, sofa set etc. The results of the pilot project work were very promising and DMRC is in the process of adopting the practice to other depots as well.
