Hi-tech waste management units in Bangalore

With systems and quality support by Sweep Smart, a Netherlands based organisation, a dry-waste management centre in Rajajinagar and the dry waste management unit of the Electronic City Industrial Township Authority (ELCITA) have upgraded their waste management processes thereby taking the city’s collective efforts up a notch and also offering the Public-Private- Partnership(PPT) a renewed hope. Sweep Smart works towards the principle of turning waste into happiness. This is achieved through organisation and cleanliness in the domain. At ELCITA, about 3.5 tonnes of waste collected from about 80 companies everyday is further segregated into 30 or more categories for maximum recycling. Instead of sitting amid the stinky and dirty pile of waste, now the workers are made to sort through the assortment that gets transferred to them through a conveyor belt. Masks, gloves and other safety equipment have been standardised, and fire safety mechanisms installed. A baling machine compresses card-boards and a few other materials into easy-to- transport blocks. With tech support from Mindtree’s `I got garbage’ initiative, all necessary data is made available at the touch of the fingertip. This support, it is believed will help will make the organisation improve in processing and quality.
