Did you know that India's urban population generates around 72 million tonnes of waste each year? But it gets worse! Only about a quarter of the 72 million tonnes is actually collected and only about a quarter of it is processed.Furthermore, our two most populous cities, Mumbai and Delhi, produce around 100,000 and 8,700 tonnes of solid waste every day.
What is the Importance of apartments waste management?
According to a MoHUA research, organic biodegradable matter accounts for about 30% to 55% of municipal solid waste.
You can now see why proper waste management is critical!
The waste from households can be divided into the following categories:
1: Hazardous Waste
2: Dry Waste
3: Wet Waste
Wet waste is the most biodegradable in nature and comes from the kitchen. Left food, rotting vegetables, fruits, vegetable peels, fruit peels, used tea bags, coconut shells, left over flowers/leaves, meat and non-veg are some of the frequent moist wastes seen in households. This waste is easily compostable, making it a cost-effective wet waste option for apartments and residential societies.
What are residents' responsibilities in a Housing Society or an Apartment Complex?
Because organic waste accounts for over half of all waste produced, it is our job as individuals to segregate it at the source to guarantee that it is properly disposed of.
Here's a list of things inhabitants of a housing society/apartment complex may do to make things run more smoothly:
1: Separate the dry and moist waste bins. Also, ensure that diapers and sanitary waste are wrapped in newspaper with a red cross on it.
2: To make the razor/blades visible to the housekeeper, place them in a clear container.
3: Dry waste should not be mixed with other types of waste.
4: Ensure that your wet waste is disposed of on a daily basis.
5: Dry waste should be stored and disposed of at least once a week, or as directed by your community.
6: If you utilize environmentally friendly products, ensure sure they have a recycling symbol on them.
What are the responsibilities of the members of the Society's managing committee?
If you're the secretary of a society, it's your job to put waste management policies in place and make sure they're followed.
Here are some things you can do to guarantee that your society's waste management system runs smoothly:
1: Create waste segregation awareness among the members and staff of the Managing Committee.
2: Separate dustbins for dry and wet waste should be provided in society.
3: Display posters in the lift or corridor to raise awareness about waste separation among residents.
4: Members or residents that adhere to the segregation process should be praised and rewarded.
5: A completely automatic composting machine, such as the Netsol’s Domestic Food Recyclers, may transform organic waste into compost in less than 24 hours. These machines are available in a variety of capacities, allowing you to select the one that best meets your needs.
It is critical that the housing societies be informed about the latest advancements in SWM Rules and Compliance in order to guarantee that an appropriate waste management system is in place.With the domestic and global waste management markets expected to grow rapidly in the coming years, it is critical for housing societies, which are an important part of the urban landscape, play a critical role in waste management, to stay proactive by staying well informed and well-equipped about waste management rules.
