Municipal Solid Waste Management in Rural Areas

Uthiramerur is a panchayat town in Kancheepuram district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Uthiramerur deals with the municipal solid waste management by doing source segregation and also maximizing utilization of municipal solid waste.

I visited this facility a month ago, which is quite impressive. Its set up in a prominent location where everyone will have a sneak peek at this facility. Upcycled decors and placed everywhere in an around the facility which will make the people to visit the facility.

Waste collection is done by two processes. They are primary and secondary processes. The primary process includes the door to door collection and the secondary collection is the collection boxes in the corner of each street.

Detailed information about the effective municipal solid waste management followed at Uthiramerur can be found here:
