Attingal municipality will also establish a landfill for the disposal of non-biodegradable waste at its waste treatment plant at Chudukad. According to ‘Solid waste management rules’, all civic bodies should have a landfill to dispose of non-biodegradable waste. In a landfill, the solid waste is deposited in thin layers in a well-protected pit and compressed using machinery. After several layers of waste are placed, the top are is covered with thick soil.

Attingal has always been a role model when it comes to waste management. The municipality was selected as a clean city for many times in a row by the State Pollution Control Board.
