In the sphere of solid waste management challenges are many, often different in urban and rural areas. In urban areas, the lifestyle of the citizens results in the generation of higher quantities of waste as well as more waste types that are difficult to dispose of. In rural areas, on the other hand, the quantum of waste generated is less, thereby making it difficult to provide self-sustaining solutions. However, irrespective of the location, the strongest challenge in solid waste management is segregation at the source. Till the culture of source segregation is established and that practice by the households and other waste generators is followed by a vibrant system of the quick collection of waste from the doorsteps, if necessary multiple times a day, waste management cannot be turned into a self-sustaining and revenue-generating proposition. Along with this system of segregation at source, quick collection, secondary segregation and using biodegradable waste for the production of compost one need to levy and collect user charges for a viable solution to the problem.
EcoVocal Solutions, having properly trained human resources provides services to the governments and the local bodies in the following areas of solid waste management:
For the urban sector, the challenges are different and often need machine-based solutions. EcoVocal would tie up with the larger players in urban legacy and fresh waste management and bring about the solutions to the municipalities and municipal corporations. We work on preparation of micro-plan on source segregation of municipal solid waste and providing mentoring support to local supervisors and other field level workers in implementation of the plan. We would also support the urban local bodies in its efforts to comply with the directions of the Governments and the Courts, including the National Green Tribunal.
