Brij Bhoomi Housing Society in Bhayander (West) implemented a measure to reduce
waste disposal by segregating the daily waste into dry waste which includes
plastic, metals etc and wet waste (kitchen waste like cooked food, vegetables,
fruits, rice starch etc). The wet waste was collected in “Organic waste
processor”. OWP is a BioCNG plant where good bacteria breakdown the organic
material in the absence of air producing cooking gas and organic manure. The
BioCNG plant runs without electricity.3After
segregating the waste the larger waste is passed through the shredder after
which it enters the digester which the decomposition takes place. It takes
15-17 days to convert the waste into manure which is also called as
“Biofertilizer”. This Biofertilizer is used in gardening etc.

Problems
faced by society in implementation of techniques were lack of awareness among
residents, less cooperation, lack of 100% literacy, lack of self motivation.planning
was done addressing the various issues faced by residents. Major issues taken
into consideration were water, electricity, organic waste, cleanliness and
health & hygiene. The
first major concern was water saving. Earlier water was supplied for 2 hours in
a day. Supply of water was reduced to 30 minutes every day. We were able to
saving approximately 45% of water consumption daily. The second major concern
was electricity saving. Though the occupants were not sure about the success of
installing solar panels for saving electricity, after installation they were
happy about reduction of electricity bill. Hence the idea of implementation of
solar panels was successful. Third major issue was disposal of waste at individual
level. Awareness was created by hybrid groups of society comprising of youth
and adults of various professions along with MBMC (Mira-Bhayander Municipal
corporation) professionals. Idea of installing organic waste processor was
proposed and finalised. To install the OWP, “Raddi selling campaign” was
initiated for revenue generation without creating additional burden on the
residents of the society. Fourth major concern was clean and green society
supporting “Clean India” campaign.  Flash mobs were
organised in the society for cleanliness awareness on weekends and during
holidays. A association was formed to observe the cleanliness of the society.
Trees were planted and survival was monitored on weekly basis. Last major concern
as health and hygiene which was addresses by medical professionals by arranging
health checkups camps free of cost twice a year. Future Scope:1.      
By
saving water today the society is contributing their bit towards the water
scarcity issue.2.      
By
installing solar panels and using solar power the usage cost will be
drastically reduced and the installation cost will be recovered in the long
run.3.      
Revenue
can be generated by selling the compost and cooking gas can be self utilized or
sold.4.      
By
maintaining clean and green environment, health and hygiene we can have a
healthy long life and inculcating good habits in future generation.
