Suggestions for household
and hotel waste are:
- segregating organic,
recyclable, and debris waste at the building level itself
- give the recyclable
waste to ragpickers
- treat the organic
waste via vermiculture at the community level itself
- the balance waste
to be in bins in the building itself, and not in public places
- debris to be disposed
at specific areas in an utilitarian way e.g. landscaping
- medical waste to be
autoclaved and disposed in a particular way.
Pestom Sagar Citizens Forum, Chembur:
Pestom Sagar Citizens Forum, Chembur has the biggest ALM set up.
We also are carrying out vermiculture in a big way. For the last
four years we have been collecting and recycling the Nirmalya
of Ganeshotsav in our circular vermiculture pit around a unique
Since 2000 our area
zero garbage and we have done away with all the dustbins; we employ
our own sweepers and clean the roads twice. For more details please

- decentralised waste management
My interest has been decentralised waste management.
Within that there are various issues like encouraging varius
individuals and companies which have or are already carrying
out very effective solutions at a lesser cost and less damage
to the environment. The corporation needs to give incentives
for such ventures to take of at the neighbourhood level. Also
things like garbage segregation at the building level has
not picked up. Corporation needs to give incentives in such
a manner that all these stakeholders are encouraged rather
than the no-brainer pick and dump approach being followed
now. Have been involved over four years but very actively
in the past month with SWM in Lokhandwala Complex.
