MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE
India generates enormous quantities of waste every day. Municipal Solid Waste Management is defined as the discipline associated with the control of generation, collection, storage, transfer and transport, processing, and disposal of solid wastes. The ‘4R Principle’ is a widely used principle in solid waste management, which stands for "Reduce, Re-use, Recycle and Recover."
At VMPL, we focus on the first three Rs -- Reduce, Re-use, and Recycle and provide the following facilities:
Door-to-door collection of waste.
Material Recovery Facility (MRF): One of the responsibilities of the Urban Local Bodies, as highlighted by the Solid Waste Management Rules 2016, is setting up of Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs). An MRF is a plant that separates and prepares single-stream recycling materials to be sold to end buyers. Non-biodegradable materials and solid waste collected from authorised or unauthorised waste collectors, which can be reused and recycled, end up at MRFs. Here, waste is segregating, sorted, processed, or disposed of. MRFs sort a wide array of recyclable materials like plastics, cardboard, paper, glass bottles, metal containers and cartons.
Recovering recyclable waste materials and dispatching them to respective recycling units, transferring organic compostable waste to bio-methanation plants dumping of unused, non-recyclable, and hazardous waste into sanitary landfills, supplying composting machines for the transport of biodegradable waste to municipalities and electronic garbage collector vehicles.
At VMPL, based on the mandate provided by the Municipal Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016, we have started an MRF where waste can be recovered, stored, and transported to the respective recycling centres.
