ZERO WASTE PROJECT
AT NEW MOTI BAGH
Zero Waste Project at GPRA Complex, New Moti Bagh, New Delhi is a unique model of decentralized Solid Waste Management with the support of Ministry of Urban Development, Govt. of India and National Building Construction Corporation (NBCC). GPRA Complex in New Moti Bagh is a 110 Acres complex with over 1000 families residing in the complex. The average waste treated at the complex is 1.5 tons of household and 1 ton of green & horticultural waste everyday. Waste comprises of dry household waste, wet kitchen waste and green & horticultural waste. The waste is collected and brought to the segregation site from where the organic, green and plastic segregated waste is treated at the plant. The other dry waste is stored and sent for recycling to the respective recycling plants. The resultant product from organic waste treatment is organic fertilizer (organic khad) and from green waste we produce biomass pellets.
Plastic Waste is treated to produce Low Density Oil (LDO), Carbon and Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG). LDO can be further refined to a better quality fuel like Petrol & Diesel.
Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)
We have undertaken various social initiatives to make cities litter-free and spread awareness among people regarding proper disposal of different kinds of waste with a keen focus on plastics waste.
Litter-Free Connaught Place
Connaught Place, New Delhi, April-December, 2011
It was started as a joint initiative by Indian Centre for Plastics in the Environment (ICPE) and the Plastic Manufactures and Traders Association, Delhi (PMTA) to demonstrate a litter-free experience for all. Connaught Place (C.P) attracts a lot of visitors and since the introduction of the Metro, it has seen a revival of the shopping complex and many more visitors. The visitors discarded a large amount of solid waste such as plastic bags, cups, wrappers etc. across the area due to the unavailability of proper disposal facilities. A dedicated team of 8 workers and a supervisor worked throughout the week except Tuesday from morning 11 AM till evening 7 PM to ensure that the area was kept clean and spread awareness about Anti-Littering practices. They were provided with proper uniforms, safety guards and cleaning equipments. Black colored bags were used for collection of waste that was ultimately discarded in the large community bins put-up by NDMC.
Approximately more than 100 tons of solid waste was picked and disposed properly in six months of our operations at Connaught Place. The initiative was supported and appreciated by the local market association i.e. New Delhi Traders Association (NDTA) and got covered by the local media as well.
