WASTE MANAGEMENT PROJECT
According to a World Bank estimate, an individual in a developing country produces an average of 0.45 - 0.50 kg of municipal solid waste per day. The cities and towns of Bangladesh generate approximately 17,000 tons of waste per day most of which do not get treated or disposed off in the right manner. Within the next 25 years, the number is estimated to reach 47,064 tons per day. The Waste Management Project has been designed at Green Channel to resolve the waste problem in Bangladesh.
The Project aims to put in force sustainable systems of waste collection, segregation, and treatment along with controlled, systematic and creative ways of reducing waste generation across the country.
The Project hopes to accomplish three goals in the long term:
- Create efficient and convenient systems of waste management
- Change the culture of waste handling
- Develop and implement creative new waste solutions through further research
