Kanpur MSW management – Approach & Methodology

In line with the requirements of the Integrated Solid Waste Management, A2Z Infrastructure Limited follows a straightforward and pragmatic approach throughout the project execution at Kanpur.

Collection & transportation

The primary aspects of the collection and transportation system include 100% collection and transportation of generated waste; adoption of proven technologies for waste collection and transportation infrastructure; use of robust communication network using Information Technology for handling of complaints and Geographic Information System (GIS) along with GPS for tracking collection and transportation system. Organised system like GIS will help in comprehending large amount of spatial data and in decision making.

Primary Collection

To run waste management system efficiently, the following approach is adopted by A2Z

i.The city is divided into clear working zones which may be contiguous with the existing zonal setup of the ULB.

ii.Work starts prospectively and progressively so that all the zones get covered in 90 days of the COD

iii.Door-to-door waste collection starts during wee hours of morning 7:00 a.m. and continues till 1:00 p.m.

iv.For efficient collection of waste from slum areas and narrow lanes, the backbone of collection system is an 8-bin cycle rickshaw.

v.Safai Mitra with eight-bin rickshaw goes to a house and whistles. One of the eight bins in the rickshaw is used to empty the garbage received from the house.

Secondary Storage

Once the bins on the rickshaw are full, Safai Mitra unloads the same into nearby 1100 litre bin which is placed at a strategic location. The 1100 litre bin when full is emptied into the Refuse Compactor. The refuse compactors make trips during night to ensure that there is no inconvenience to general public and the city sees a clean road on day rise. The area around the bins is cleaned to ensure that no garbage is littered around. Old dhalaos (community waste storage depots) are cleaned. Roads are cleaned and ensured that there are no ugly heaps of garbage, anywhere.

Transportation

Each of the compactors are 18cum or even lesser capacity compactors,(depending upon city conditions and waste generated) which can carry up to 10 MT and depending upon the volume of garbage takes load from 40 to 50 bins. On wider roads, the backbone of the collection is a Tata Ace based tipper which can collect upto 1 MT garbage at a time. Once full, these tippers are directly emptied into the refuse compactors. Each and every lane of each ward and each bin location are mapped, marked and tabulated. Each of the vehicles is equipped with GPS system and every incidence of the compactor halting at every bin is monitored and recorded. The user charges are collected by A2Z and the onsite online data loggers are used to collect payment, track user response and issue receipts. The workshops are well equipped to maintain the fleet of waste transportation vehicles. A very cordial relationship is maintained with various stakeholders viz. ward Councillors and residents through weekly ward-wise stakeholder meetings.
