How can we improve Solid Waste Management in India?

Solid waste management is a basic essential service provided by local governing bodies in the country to keep urban centres clean. However, presently, only 70-80% waste is collected, while only 22% is treated. The Government of India’s vision is to make country clean and have established mechanism for Management of Solid Waste. and current challenges to existing mechanisms can be helped with MapmyIndia’s Solid Waste Management Solution.

This solution consists of 3 parts:

  1. GIS Mapping of Bins and Collection Points
  2. GPS-based Vehicle Tracker Installation
  3. Attendance Management System

GIS Mapping of Bins, Collection Points, Dumping Points, Dumping Yard:

MapmyIndia will develop a comprehensive database for all Solid Waste Management related assets through field survey & GIS Mapping. The database includes information of the following:

  • Vehicles in link with device IDs & IMEI numbers
  • All routes
  • Collection Points (including bin location) & dumping ground associating with routes
  • Drivers
  • Schedule
  • List of officials with phone numbers for triggering alerts
  • List of staff members along with reporting and area details – for attendance management
  • Schedule of Field Staff

Installation of GPS-based Vehicle Trackers in Waste collection and Disposal Vehicles

The collection and transportation of the huge amount of waste is a matter of concern for urban local bodies. A large number of municipal and private vehicles are used for collection of waste. The disposal process could be through a land fill, program, burning place or a waste treatment plant. All these vehicle trips require route planning as well as real time monitoring to ensure that the whole operation is done in efficient manner.

We will help track the number of trips and actual visits. MapmyIndia’s Solution will help the department to structure the entire process, manage and monitor their fleet. More importantly, installing these devices will provide valuable insight into how fleets are being used and help Municipal Corporation to effectively utilize their existing assets.

It will be integrated with MapmyIndia’s accurate, comprehensive and detail-rich digital maps.
