Sunhera Kal, Chikkajala Waste Management
Program

Location : Chikkajala Grama Panchayat (Bengaluru Rural District)

Supported By : ITC Limited

Chikkajala Grama Panchayat (GP) lies in close proximity to BIAL airport. The area comprises of lower income small dwellings, as well as high income houses and multi dwellings. It is a semi urban area, where the Panchayat has an existing system of door to door collection, but waste is being littered around the GP limits, due to lack of awareness among the residents. Waste collected is dumped outside the GP and is frequently burnt which leads to severe pollution of the surroundings, and the lake is nearly contaminated.

The Waste Management program under ITC Mission Sunhera Kal project is an effort to provide a solution to disposal of waste in the GP. The key components of this program are: awareness creation and sensitization of Chikkajala residents towards the growing problem of waste, source segregation of waste by the residents, enabling home composting of food waste, daily waste collection from Bazaar street, alternate wet waste collection from households and shops, weekly collection of dry waste from households, GP level composting of wet waste, storage and sorting of dry waste in shed, sale of recyclables and routing of non-recyclables to cement factories. To enable maximum resource recovery from waste and prevent dumping of mixed waste in the GP.
