Lucknow: Earlier, Pardaphash.com reported that the waste management company A2Z Group is working in perfect manner for Kanpur and this has been concluded with the example given by Dr. Paul.
If we talk about the history of Kanpur city (Uttar Pradesh, India) then this city was remembered as the ‘Manchester of India’ for being the major production center of Textiles.
As per the reports, Bangalore generates around 5,000 tonnes of waste every day and keeping this in mind the civic agency should shell out money and provide land to private companies that collect and recycle waste.
U N Tiwari (Kanpur Additional Municipal Commissioner) said that the project was started in 2010 and it has changed the whole scenario and is helping us to keep Kanpur clean.
Along with this he added, "We have given 46 hectares of land and pay around Rs 1.8 crore a month to the private firm that takes care of all aspects of solid waste management. Part of the money given to the firm is generated through the nominal user development fee collected from households, shops, commercial and industrial establishments and ranges from Rs 30 to Rs 80 a month.”
During a conversation with A2Z Group official it was added that A2Z Infrastructure Private Limited is implementing the project on build-own operate-and-transfer (BOOT)-model and we collects around 1,300 tonnes of garbage each day. Then, it is processed at our plant for the manufacturing of bio-fertilizer bags, bricks and tiles and waste is also used to generate power.
While, this time Dr Samuel Paul (Public Affairs Centre (PAC) Founder) for its garbage problem said that Bangalore should learn something from Kanpur. He added, "When a town like Kanpur can do it, why not Bangalore?"
Dr. Paul also revealed the facts behind Bangalore unsuccessful waste management program and he said, In city like Bangalore, door-to-door collection is not done properly done and we have no system to collect waste from commercial establishments, while waste from vegetable markets is thrown on streets.
He also questioned BBMP and Government that why they are not ready with this fabulous plan?
Along with this he added his statements that it shows either people are not capable enough to do their jobs or they are corrupt."
