|The heart and life-line of any waste-management strategy is availability of land for composting sites and adjacent or nearby landfills for their non-toxic compost rejects.
Yet these are most unwanted by neighbours, their locations strenuously opposed by the public because of their nuisance and polluting value if poorly managed, and the fear of property values crashing around them.
Action Time-Table for Identifying Sites for Hygienic Waste Processing and Disposal and Commencing Composting Operatons on them
Action by Govt:
Design & Execution of MSW Closure
The implementation of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) 2000 rules expects all Municipal bodies to improve, segregate and dispose of the waste in a scientific manner. Open dumping of the waste is the disposal method that is currently adopted by most of the cities. This has led to several groundwater contamination and health related problems.
Urban Agriculture on Stabilised City Waste
Every town and city can improve its existing dumps and manage its city waste hygienically and sustainably, starting today, at minimal start-up cost.
Garbage Management at Dumpsite
Turn the windrow once a week thrice, that is enough to consume 30-35% of the "liable fraction of carbohydrates" which is measure cause of troubles listed above(on the negative side) and most useful part for nutrient conservaiton(on positive side).
Environmental Impact Analysis of Proposed Landfill Sites
The role of the environmental assessment for this solidwaste disposal project is to determine the baseline environmental condition and to evaluate and reduce or prevent the direct and indirect negative cumulative effects on the biophysical, ecological, social and cultural environment.
Extract from Chapter 1—General :
Floodplain, fault area, seismic impact zone, and unstable area restrictions address conditions that they have adverse effects on landfill performance that could lead to releases to the environment or disruptions of natural functions (e.g., floodplain flow restrictions). Airport safety, floodplain, and wetlands criteria intended to restrict MSWLF units in areas where sensitive natural environments and/or the public may be adversely affected.
Remediating Open Dumps and Recycling of Spaces
Bio-mining of old garbage dumps can create new space for waste processing as done at Gorai, Mumbai in 2004 and....
