Waste to Wealth:

Solid Waste Management

  • Solid Waste Management is an essential service provided by the municipality and it is associated with control of generation, storage, collection, transport or transfer, processing and disposal of solid waste in a way that best addresses the range of public health, conservation, economic, aesthetic, engineering, and other environmental considerations.
  • Odisha’s Solid Waste management model is a decentralized & community driven model with MCC and MRF. Co-located and together named as a Wealth Centre.
  • As per the Standard Operating Procedure on decentralized solid waste management of Govt of Odisha, the Puri Municipality has planned to establish 10 Micro Composting Centers as Aerobic Composting for Wet Waste and 06 Material Recovery Facilities for Dry Wastes.
  • In MCC(Micro Composting Centre), aerobic composting process is involved in microbial decomposition of wet waste collected from the households/commercial establishments thereby converting the wet waste into organic manure branded as “MO KHATTA”.
  • The recyclables and non-recyclables are segregated from dry waste. The recyclable are sold to registered vendors generating revenue for the Wealth centers. The Non recyclable waste are sent to cement factory for co-processing.
  • The entire process leads to financial empowerment of The Self Help Group (SHG) members and Rag pickers group who generate “wealth from waste”.
