Case Study-I

A Public Private Partnership that turns rural wastes into resources

The Community Based SLWM project under TSC has been initiated in Raghunatpur I Gram Panchayat of Shahid Matangini Block of East Medinipur from end of December 2008 with support from UNICEF Kolkata and Purba Medinipur ZP. The project was launched with a participatory planning workshop facilitated by TSC Task Force, P&RDD, GoWB, Purba Medinipur Zilla Parishad, and UNICEF. Centralised compost shed A local NGO ‘Amra Susama Jalaprapat” has been given the responsibility of implementing the activities by Shahid Matangini Panchayat Samiti and Raghunathpur I GP. Since inception, special effort has been vested for awareness generation at household level. A detailed house to house survey covering 3000 HH of all the 13 Gram Sansads was conducted to understand the nature and volume of wastes generated in the Gram Panchayat. The house to house survey platform was also judiciously used by the implementing agency for inter personal communication and promoting key messages related with safe disposal of solid and liquid wastes.

IEC materials developed and used In this project, stress has been given for on‐site treatment of household level wastes by promoting vermi‐composting and kitchen gardening at household level. For this purpose local youth and SHG members (total 11 covering 13 Gram Sansad of Raghunathpur I GP) were trained by local NGO to promote the concept at household level. A design of a household level vermi‐compost tank has already been prepared by the local NGO and Tamralipta Guccha Samiti, and very shortly it will be demonstrated and promoted at household level. Beside this, Paschim Banga Vigyan Macha has created eco‐clubs in each school of that locality. A Green Brigade (Sabuj Bahini) has been developed by the local NGO and Gram Panchayat from the members of those eco‐clubs to disseminate information and key messages related with safe disposal of solid and liquid wastes at household and market places. Very shortly, a handholding training of this Green Brigade will be organized. Bins placed at market places A specially designed wastes collection rickshaw For wastes in market places, road‐ side, agricultural wastes and from densely populated areas, a centralised compost ground has been developed. Gram Panchayat contributed the land. Before the construction activities, it was a low land. Shahid Matangini Panchayat Samiti mobilised resources from WBREGS for up‐ gradation of the land. Approximately 1700 man‐days had been created covering 40 labours for reclamation of this low‐lying land. Two compost sheds have been constructed from the project cost. Stress has been given to use local materials like bamboo, straw, etc for construction of the sheds. One shed consists of six under ground (lined in both sides with polythene sheet to reduce the cost) chambers, mainly used for aerobic decomposition of bio‐degradable wastes. To accelerate the process of decomposition cow dung and cow urine are also mixed with wastes. Here decomposition takes place for 21 days. From there, waste moves to the vermi‐compost beds. Just beside the aerobic compost shed, vermi‐compost beds have been constructed with thatched roof, false ceiling and concrete floor.

At present 5000 earthworm are being given to 800 kg of semi‐decomposed wastes. Low-cost aerobic decomposition chamber A low-cost vermi compost shed and bed Organisation is slowly increasing the number of earthworm to accelerate the process of compost preparation. Now, it takes 30‐40 days to decompose it fully. But, if the dosing amount of earthworm is increased to 1200 per 800 kg of wastes, then within 20 days after aerobic decomposition the vermi‐ compost will be produced. At present approximately, 40,000 earthworms are there. Initially organisation bought 5000 earthworm (African variety) from the market. Gram Panchayat has also taken an innovative strategy to reclamation of ponds. Water hyacinths from the ponds are collected in frequent intervals and are used as a feeding item for earthworm to prepare vermi‐ compost. Specially designed rickshaw for collection of water hyacinth Every day specially designed rickshaw van with two compartments collect the wastes from market places and densely populated houses. A special designed rickshaw has been constructed only for collection of water hyacinth. Organisation is planning to design a special mobile unit (pedal van) to collect waste water from fish and vegetable market, also. At present from 300 shops, 200 families from densely populated habitations, and 20 ponds daily 300 kg of solid wastes are collected. Since the inception of the project Vermi-bed is cured with water total 400 kg of vermi‐compost has been produced. 100 kg of vermi‐compost has been sold at the rate of Rs 6/kg. With packaging the production cost of per kg of vermi‐compost is coming to nearly Rs 4/kg, however it will be reduced to Rs 3.25‐3.50/kg when the production will increase. Gram m Panchayat has created a small group of farmers (Bipanan Bandhu) to promote the organic framing and usage of vermi‐compost amongst local farmers (social marketing). Final vermi-compost packed for sale Vermi-wash collection chamber Beside vermi‐compost, a special arrangement has been made to collect the vermi‐wash also. Already 50 ltr of Vermi‐wash has been collected and it is an excellent liquid fertiliser. Inside the compost ground, one small nursery has been developed where vermi‐wash has been used in the plants and results are very encouraging. Gram Panchayat is planning to sale vermi‐wash also. In Tamil Nadu 1 ltr of Vermi‐Wash is sold as Rs 80/kg. Workers involved in wastes segregation The local organisation has also demonstrated the use of Grey water for kitchen gardening in the nursery plots by pitcher irrigation technology (Kalsi Sech). Pitchers with specially created small holes and with straws inside, placed beneath the ground with only mouth is showing above the ground. In regular intervals, pitchers are planted inside the ground. Now grey water is poured in the pitcher through its mouth and water slowly get into the ground. The small holes and straws clean the water and control the speed. Water slowly percolates into the ground. This is a traditional drip farming technology. Organisation has already developed and produced those pre fabricated pitchers and will start promoting at the household level. This project has given employment opportunity and social inclusiveness to 10 people coming from weaker section of the society out of which five is women. Now, the workers have a stable source of income. Proper protection measures of workers have been ensured with uniform, gloves and mask. Beside the monthly honorarium of Rs 1000 workers are given lunch by the local NGO. Nursery with Pitcher Irrigation

Organisation is facing the challenge while dealing with non‐biodegradable recyclable wastes. Nearly 300 kg of recyclable wastes like paper, plastic, rubber are stored. Organisation is planning to set up a small recycled paper making plant with the SHG members and purchase a plastic shredding and cutting machine for selling it to the plastic manufacturers. Women members involved with the project This project is a good example of public‐private partnership between local Gram Panchayat and NGO under the leadership of a newly constituted advisory committee at Gram Panchayat level headed by Panchayat Pradhan is implementing the activities. At the same time, in addition of making resources from wastes, it provides opportunity for low income communities, especially the women to contribute towards ensuring environmental sanitation with active participation from children and youth.

Case Study – II

A Step Ahead Towards Cleanliness- Bohar-I Gram Panchayat

             Almost 2792 families live at Bohar-I Gram Panchayat under Memari II Block of Burdwan district in West Bengal. The families are belonging from different castes, different religions and different communities- totally mixed habitants. The habitants are economic almost very close to rich. The villagers are capable to enjoy the facilities of all type of modern amenities. The local people demand to identify a particular place where they can dump their daily waste side by side the awareness about the uses of toilets in all houses and various institutions. Usually the villagers would select a water body or a bush to dump the wastes nearby their houses. The condition would become miserable during festival or occasion happened in a house. Bohar-I Nirmal Udyan was developed by the above-mentioned Gram Panchayat side by side various developmental works for the village dwellers to meet the necessity and demand of the local people of the hamlet.

             The waste would not dump at roads, at houses and at hat-markets daily through Bohar-I Nirmal Udyan project gradually. A mechanism was developed to collect the waste in regular basis to recycling the waste into other useful materials. The aforesaid project funded by the Burdwan Zilla Parishad through Memary –II block under Mision Nirmal Bangla fund. Only 1st installment amount of 10 lakh out of 20 lakh received by the Gram Panchayat. It was assured that the rest fund would be received very soon. The primary goal to build required infrastructure for this purpose had already been set up.

            The project developed in the unused land near Kharpai Chaditala which is familiar as a religious place at the middle of the Sontla village. It was established for 9 mouzas of 10 Gram Sansad of that Gram Panchayat. The land mentioned above was located at Bishnupur Mouza under Memari Police Station. The Nirman Sahayak of said Gram Panchayat primarily prepared a Detailed Project Report to set up an infrastructure and completed the work. It took almost 1 year. Few initiatives had been taken for participate local people. The initiatives were –

  • The functionaries and the Nirman Sahayak received training at State level
  • Conceptual or orientation training organized for elected members of the Gram Panchayat on how to manage waste safely
  • A survey was conducted in every houses and every shops
  • Health workers and Anganwadi workers received training on related issues
  • ASHA worker got training on it
  • A resource group was formed by the women of various level of that locality
  • All Self Help Group (SHG) members oriented through participatory reading and learning methods on solid and liquid waste management safely
  • The resource group got chance to visit other district to share their experiences
  • Two types of leaflets were distributed for two times in each house and every shop
  • A stall organized at the local fare to disseminate the message how to segregate the solid and liquid waste in household level
  • The workers of the resource group visited each house and made understood what are the expectations in household level

    Currently waste were collected in daily basis from 1100 families at four(4) Gram Sangsad out of three(3) Gram Panchayat. Few people of the locality involved in this initiative –not all. But 80 kgs decomposing waste were collecting daily from the household. It was trying to sell the 5 to 6 kgs non-decomposing waste in many places which were collected from the household daily. The process of selling is communicating. Five workers directly involved in this work. The main product would be the vermin compost from this de composing waste in very near future.

    The infrastructure or unit consisted the waste segregation bed, small water tank for cow-dung mixed water, Land for primarily decomposing, separate area for non-decomposing waste, space for vehicle, production shed for vermin compost, tube well for drinking water, toilets, store house for allied materials, Office space, fencing and land for connecting roads etc. The whole project area was covered by forestation for beautification.

    Everyday many villagers visit the project. People have been taken this seriously. The information was disseminated through discussion in Gram Sabha and Gram Sansad Sabha, miking and other initiatives. Now it is the best time to spread the project or initiative to other sansads. Bohar-I Gram Panchayat has taken the technical help from Aamra Shusama Jalaprapat(ASJ) an specialist organization in this regard. Now it is trying to organize the project with the help of Mahatama Gandhi National Employment Guarantee Scheme.

Case Study – III

“Nirmal Bangla” and “Biswa Bangla” – through Solid & Liquid Waste Management – Our Promise, Our Pride

Prasun Kanti Das, wbasj@rediffmail.com

To Clean Bengal, The “Mission Nirmal Bangla” is a new addition of gaiety in the well known ‘Baro Mase Tero Parban’ that indicates the abundant of festivity in the state of West Bengal. Thousands of rural people are fighting against daily male practices, disease or ailment with there unseen weapon – Para Najardari Committee (PNP). Intention of all is to make the make Bengal clean. That will bring a change in the practise of people and will lead the society to healthy life style.

The initiative “Solid & Liquid Waste Management” (SLWM) is being taken in the locality where the villages are open defecation free (ODF) and where at least 80% of household have toilets and these are in regular use.

Every GP shall have to taken ‘SLWM’ as a part of other development activities, It is not only collect to daily waste, The safe disposal of waste is very essential. Garbages, by no means, should not be collected in unplanned way. It should not be get fire assembled in a heap. Gram Panchayat will get 20Lk. To 50 lak. From various fund for this initiatives. CSR fund also available for this type initiative from various industry.

For smooth & proper execution of SLWM in rural area we shall have well preparation. So it needed –

  • Political & Administrative decision & Approval
  • Base Line survey & publicity
  • Selection of land and site preparation
  • Preparation of DPR & approval
  • Infrastructure Development
  • Engagement of worker & training
  • Daily waste Collection, Segregation at source, Secondary segregation, processing, production
  • Marketing strategy preparation & implementation
  • IEC materials development and use for confirmation of Participation of people

It can, doubtlessly, be said that the huge and active participation of local people in developmental activities is very much necessary to make the programme a grand success. To ensure the participation of common people, Gram Panchayat shall have to use various methods for publicity. Gram Panchayat can make successful instance in the field of SLWM if they keep the following in the mind from very beginning –

  • Arrangement of sufficient & suitable land
  • Making relationship with any NGO or GO, those are very knowledgeable in this field
  • Good office management
  • Establishment of transparent and lick proof financial system
  • Engagement of competent & responsible workers
  • Good infrastructural development will all necessary preparation
  • Ensure the source segregation and collection of segregated waste with segregated way
  • Establishment of suitable monitoring system
  • Maintain cleanness of project site and safety of workers
  • Pre preparation & regular development of marketing system

At the time of taking such initiatives some question may be arise in the mind of people. Though we shall have to go forwarded and being answerable. Generally, the questions that need answer, are -

  • Will any pollution be spreded in the area?
  • Will there be any offensive smell from the heap of garbage?
  • Will the workers be Govt. Employee?

The answer of questions – ‘No’.

Safe disposal of garbage can be done in two ways –

1) At Central Processing Unit and 2) at sources (Specially in house hold & market)

In case of any bad smell, there is nothing to be worried at the garbage, immediately after collection, will be transformed to raw materials, in schedule time frame for re-use. If there is such smell, there must be technical fault in the process that should have to be identified for necessary risk action.

Safe disposal of waste is nothing but –

  • Source segregation of Bio-Degradable & Non Bio-Degradable waste is very essential
  • Then, in the central processing unit or in the source, the segregated garbage are transform in a process for re use
  • Cleaning of Non Bio-Degradable waste (Specially plastic) and item wise packaging is very important
  • Marketing of the non Bio-Degradable waste
  • Scientific House Hold Hazards waste collection and scientific burning through incinerator or land filling
  • Use motor van or Battery operated van for waste collection from long range area

SLWM is for the financial development of rural people and their movement towards better life-style to proper waste segregation. Transformation of waste to wealth by scientific process and building of marketing system. Very soon “Eco Friendly Gram Panchayat” and economically sustainable SLWM initiative which is now in the imagination will come in to reality in the thought. 24Pgs(N) district takes some realistic plan for SLWM initiatives in whole district step by step. “Biswa Bangle” will be more strong through “NIRMAL BANGLA”.
