Cleanliness: Can you / your NGO take up any of these tasks?
Several elements of the Cleanliness
Plan of Action will need to be elaborated in detail to take policy
decisions, for implementation guidelines, and for monitoring
i.e. a manual is to be made.
If you are willing to take up any of
the projects, please inform ASAP.
Pl advise time frame, costs, and
resources / support needed from BMC.
Pl advise briefly what the terms of
reference would be i.e. what would the output contain?
i) Types of
waste, handling & treatment for each , who does what, who
pays for what, what is the end-product and how is it to be dealt
with. Life-cycle analysis of each is needed. Flow diagram from
start to finish.
Infrastructure needed before deadline, Awareness needed to be
done before deadline, Incentives, Penalties, Monitoring,
iii) Specific localities
/ geographical areas to be identified for immediate visible
iv) Detailed operating
manuals for each for each category of stakeholder -- waste
generator, collector, transporter, treater, re-user, etc.
v) Pre-qualification /
registration requirements, if any.
A suggested list of Projects:
(and if anyone has offered / can do)
- Correlation between the
recommendations and BMC Act, MSW Rules 2000, Supreme Court Rules,
- Statistics pertaining to waste --
quantity per type and who generates.
- An overall flow diagram -- to be
done free of cost.
- List of waste in each
category of waste - to be done free of cost.
- Analysis of technology and
techniques to handle each type of waste -- you can select
the waste type - after ILFS Ecosmart give their report
- What can different wastes be
recycled into e.g. thermocol, each type of plastic, coconuts,
etc.? -- You can do for any specific wastes. -- Basically internet
research is required.
- Identification of areas in each ward
(along with BMC staff) for
a) common treatment
areas for wet waste for households, specific markets, etc.,
b) sorting areas
c) waste receving
centres for all wastes - maybe ragpickers can sort there
d) sites for debris
banks and operating machines to make products from the
e) any other area
that may be needed under the Plan of Action
- Manual for handling of wet
- Manual for dry waste
- Policy recommendations reg.
ragpickers role. - FORCE / SMS / KKPKP + Clean Sweep Forum
- Policy recommendations for handling
each type of dry waste -- how to ensure packages not filled and
recycled; what is full life-cycle for each; what laws
/ incentives / disincentives to impose on material manufacturers /
- Manual for handling debris - YUVA?
- Manual for handling medical waste
from doctors, nursing homes, ragpicker collections.
- Policy recommendations for office
waste / e-waste -- seems to have been done at Bangalore.
- Policy recommendations for beach
areas and roads adjoining the sea, areas near lakes, etc.
- Recommendations for all the
different types of hazardous waste -- includes identifying them.
- Recommendations for all
non-recyclable waste -- includes identifying them.
- Facilities in landfill areas --
after McKinsey and ILFS Ecosmart submit their reports.
- Note on tabelas - pros and cons
of banning tabelas, options of dealing with dung and hygiene --
Hopefully someone can do free of charge.
- Policy recommendations for abattoir,
slaughterhouse, slaughtering --- PETA?
- Sanitation options for slums
- Suggestions for Dattak Vasti Yojana
- Manual for 'Saaf Aangan' concept - I
- Report format for a Cleanliness Task
Force -- Clean Sweep Forum ?
- Manual for NDs -- after concept is
- Analysis of BMC Conservancy staff
- Analysis of BMC - CSO working successes and failures. -- MEDC
- Rs. 25,000
Note: The whole idea is that NGOs
experience and knowledge should be able to be formally utilised.
If any of the above are available with
any org anywhere in India, or with BMC, please let me know. I am
not aware of the existence of any. I must be wrong.
Also as NGOs, are you willing
to take up any of the following?
Pl respond with details.
- training to do composting
- doing composting
- training and capacity building - of
BMC conservancy staff, ragpickers, building sweepers, hawkers,
- education and awareness after
- any other??
The idea is that after the broad Plan
of Action is finalised and agreed upon, we would be able to
identify sets of people who can work out the details of each
element of the PoA. We don't want McKinsey to do it, do we :-)
(unless they were supposed to do it anyway, which I would presume
they should have.)
Please revert with your thoughts.
Thanks and Regards,
