Bombay Dyeing proposal for P. Budkar Marg ALM

A) The Concept:  

The self sustainable model is designed utilizing the rag pickers in an organized manner to collect and segregate dry & wet waste whereby the dry waste is sold and generates revenue and wet waste is initially handed over the MCGM but later as the initiative gets the support of the community the wet waste is pulverized and placed in vermin-composting pits and recycled into soil which can be sold as manure.

B) Location of the Initiative:

Pandurang Budhkar Marg:

Area includes the footpath opposite Elphinstone Mill, round the corner, either side of Deepak Talkies footpath and the approach road to Bombay Dyeing Mills all the way down to Worli Naka.  

Site Plan as per Annexure A.

C) Present Scenario:  

Presently at PB Marg is facing the following issues;

1)     Lot of visible waste spread over the street,

2)     Vagrant Vagabonds occupying the footpaths making pedestrian use difficult

3)     Lack of sanitation on either side of road on account of squatting by these vagrants & vagabonds,

4)     Absence of public toilet in close proximity of slums main reason for squatting,

5)     Large amount of parking in a no parking zone detrimental to cleanliness

6)     Beautification programme undertaken not well maintained.  

Photos as per Annexure B.  

D) Initiatives Planned:  

1)    Garbage collection in the area identified:  

1.      Maintaining the community bin area to ensure that the garbage is dumped in the bin and not around it.

2.      Garbage Collection & segregation

3.      Communication of garbage segregation within the slum area.

4.      Collection of waste from the slum dwellings

5.      Ensure timely removal of garbage from the bin area.

6.      Placement of ragpickers for six months to ensure the community bin area is kept clean

7.      Beautification of the community bin area.

8.      Printed communication in three languages (Hindi and Marathi) that clearly mentions the process of garbage collection and the timings for the garbage collection.

9.      Secretaries from each building to be handed over the communication of the initiative. A lead time of 15 days to be given before the process comes into effect.

11.  BDMC to provide a tricycle and uniforms to all the ragpickers in this area at no cost to the contractor or MCGM  

The association through their volunteers will:

12.  Collect garbage from society gate which needs to be segregated

13.  Training of the building sweeper to collect the waste from the building in two separate bins

14.  The association will also be involved in maintaining composting bins which can be used to recycle wet garbage from the societies.  

2)    Public toilets:  

1.      There is currently a public toilet built just opposite Paragaon Center but in the vicinity of the slums there are no public toilets hence squatting on the road has resulted lot of filth resulting difficulty to the pedestrians. There is a need to have a public toilet in that vicinity.
