Municipal Solid Waste Management
With rapid industrialisation, the quantity of waste is increasing and waste composition is getting more diversified. This requires segregation and recycling. However, because of insufficient awareness, most people simply dump waste.
Our solid waste management intervention involves door-to-door collection, segregation and processing of municipal waste.
On an average, 52% of the total waste that is collected in the solid waste management project areas is diverted from landfills and processed. Biodegradable waste is processed and the compost is sold to promote organic and sustainable farming. Non-biodegradable waste is segregated and recyclable waste is sent for reprocessing.
Our intervention is implemented in partnership with the local government and communities.
