SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT
The city of Chennai produces approximately 6404 Tons of waste per day. Strategies for collection, segregation and recycling networks for waste generated daily as well as existing waste in the canals and rivers are designed. Micro-economies are created and supported by setting up waste management infrastructure on a neighbourhood level. This will in turn lead to employment opportunities and encourage decentralised ways of dealing with waste on a daily basis.
