Eliminating the adverse impacts of waste to improve quality of life.

In today’s Punjab, public health is adversely affected by all forms of waste: from its generation to its disposal. According to the Central Pollution and Control Board’s annual report, if not addressed, the daily waste generated in the state of Punjab is expected to rise by almost 128% by 2041. Understandably, what it leads to is the catastrophic erosion of public health and safety.

In-sync with the state government’s adopted decentralized waste management method, RoundGlass Foundation’s Waste Management initiative is helping rural communities to adopt and implement effective systems. The primary goal of this initiative is reducing and eliminating adverse impacts of waste materials on people’s health and the environment - improving quality of life.

HOW IT WORKS

Ensuring a complete solution to manage waste.

Waste Management implementation mobilizes, educates, and engages the community to adopt and maintain accessible and well utilized solid waste processing system.



Creating Widespread Awareness

Continuous awareness building within communities to improve knowledge, participation, and attitudes towards sustained ecology and waste management.

Community-based Implementation

Identify and involve community champions for adoption, build and maintain composting facility, set-up street cleaning, and garbage collection system.

Keeping ZERO WASTE Targets

Analyze, monitor, and continuously optimize the process, outcome, community adherence, and participation for “Zero Waste” targets.

OUTCOMES

Restored ecosystem and public health.

Waste management initiative gives the community a chance to come together in creating a healthier and cleaner environment for all.

Healthier Community

Beyond general aesthetical improvement, WM ensures a higher level of hygiene and sanitation for both households and community, and reduces pollution.

Green Waste Reuse

Green waste gets converted to compost and aids local farmers with local low-cost manure, keeping waste from going waste.

Environmental Improvements

Waste segregation at source leads to reducing pollutants entering water systems, landfills, and helps to avoid disease and maintain eco-balance.

IMPACT

With an average of three implementations every month, the Waste Management initiative aims to reach 100 new communities by the end of 2019.
