A US based Indian engineer has designed and patented waste disposal units that match the architecture and road systems of India. Ganga Narayan Ghosh, a 83 year old mechanical engineer, after studying the system for over 30 years has designed and patented three containers which are efficient and cost-effective. Ghosh has designed elevated, steel structures of varying dimensions catering various establishments.
He believes that the garbage container should be above the ground and the container shape should also incorporate slope at the top and bottom. This ensures that the handlers do not come in direct contact with the trash. Besides, the accumulated waste in the units can be directly loaded into trucks for transfer to the dumping ground.
