My cleanliness statistics 1 -- almitra patel

 ALMITRA'S RESPONSES ARE IN CAPITALS.

8000 tons of waste generated daily.
   - 2000 T of this is construction waste. ....MAYBE 2700 TPD
   - 35% of balance waste by weight is dry waste i.e. 2000 tons approx.... NOOOO!!  7-8% BY WEIGHT, 35% TO 55% BY VOLUME POST SIEVING.
>    - and balance is wet waste (food) i.e. 4000 tons approx.
60% of non-construction waste by volume is dry waste and handling, storage, landfill space costs are determined by volume.

500 gm waste is generated per person per day (650 gm by rich people, 300 gm by poor) x 5 people / family = 2.5 kg waste / day / home.
On this basis, lot of things can be calculated -- bin sizes, trucks needed, possible cost savings, etc. OVERESTIMATE.  RICH 450 GM, POOR 125-250 GM PER CAPITA PER DAY.

Rs. 140 cr is spent on transporting garbage.PER DAY? WEEK? MONTH? YR?

60% people live in slums. Generate 50% of the garbage....NOOOO!!  60% LIVE IN SLUMS, GENERATION PER FAMILY IS 20-25% OF RICH.

It takes 30 days in theory to vermi-compost, 45 days in practice. This is needed to calculate pit size.  UPTO 60 DAYS FOR MATURITY.

Mumbai has 1800 km roads - 1200 km are cleaned daily by BMC staff, 600 km are cleaned daily through outsourcing.  STUDY RATIO OF SKs PER KM IN CROWDED, MEDIUM, LOW-DENSITY AS PER SUPREME CT COMM RPT PARA 3.7
SOMETHING SEEMS VERY WRONG!!  O N L Y 1800 KM?  AT LOWEST NORMS OF PARA 3.7, OF 0.3 KM PER SK FOR PIN-POINT BEATS = ONLY 6000 SKs REQD.  ADD 1/6TH FOR WEEKLY OFF, ADD ANOTHER 1/11TH FOR ANNUAL LEAVE, GIVES ONLY 7700 SKs REQD.  WHAT ARE THE REST DOING?? ASSIGN THEM TO MAN BLACK SPOTS, BINS, MAYBE COMPOSTING IF WILLING AND BENEFITED FROM COMPOST SALES. 
NGO COUNCIL CAN HELP BEST BY WORKING OUT PIN-POINT BEAT DETAILS FOR EVERY COUNCILOR WARD STREET AND LANE.
