Waste Management at INA Colony in Delhi

Delhi struggles to dispose of the 6,000 tonnes of solid waste generated daily, despite 50,000 MCD sweepers and 700 garbage trucks to collect the garbage from 3,000 points across the city. One can see huge piles of dumps everywhere with the stench from this filling the air adding to land and air pollution as well.Litter is more than an eyesore on city streets, parks, colonies, markets and alongside highways. Litter pollutes waterways and leaches toxic chemicals into soil and groundwater as it breaks down as well as pollutes the air.

 KALYANMAYEE is committed to minimizing any adverse effects of its activities on the environment, while continuously improving its environmental performance.G.R.O.Wor Government Reducing Office Waste is our logo for the same. Kalyanmayee Waste Management System, KWMS is managing all the waste produced in the AAI Residential Colony at INA, New Delhi. The name given is   Waste managementis the collection, transport, processing, recycling or disposal, and monitoring of waste materials.

The term usually relates to materials produced by human activity, and is generally undertaken to reduce their effect on health, the environment or aesthetics. Waste management is also carried out to recover resources from it.   Inspired by our Chief Minister, Mrs. Sheila Dikshit,who is doing so much for the environment to make Delhi Green and pollution free, Kalyanmayee has taken up the disposal of solid waste in the Airport Authority of India colony at INA in New Delhi.

  In the colony, kitchen waste from all the houses is collected. Land at one corner of the colony has been identified for this purpose. By a simple process of wormiculture, this waste is converted to rich manure.   This manure is retailed out and also is supplied to all the nurseries maintained by AAI in New Delhi. Thus not only the kitchen waste dumped effectively but also is used to produce manure to add to plants and make a Green Planet.
