Feedback Foundation is providing technical support for developing a pilot Integrated Decentralized Solid Waste Management Model in 15 wards of Malanpur Nagar Parishad (MNP), Madhya Pradesh. Towards this objective, a Material Recover Facility [MRF] has been developed and one Micro Composting Centre [MCC] is being developed in MNP to meet the SWM requirement of the city. Citizen awareness drives and capacity building workshops are being conducted for segregation of waste at source and waste reduction initiatives. Door-to-door collection of segregated waste is done by collection boys which is then brought to the MRF. The segregated waste is categorized as wet waste or biodegradable, dry waste or recyclables (i.e., plastics, wood, metals, paper, paper board, glass, textiles, etc.), domestic bio-medical, and domestic hazardous waste. Secondary and tertiary segregation is done at MRF.
- The wet/biodegradable waste is converted into compost through the composting pits built at the MRF. The MRF has 3 composting pits and an MCC is also under construction.
- Dry waste/recyclables are segregated based on their economic value, washed and stored in classified sacks and each sack is tagged with a nameplate on it, and sold to authorized vendors.
- An incinerator is being procured for the safe disposal of domestic biomedical waste, and domestic hazardous waste is being sold to authorized vendors.
