Waste collection and management is becoming a big issue all over India and many entrepreneurs are coming up with innovative ideas to tackle different issues. One such issue is waste collection infection and injuries to the workers. Mr. Gaurav Acharya designed a ‘Technology for the Sanitation Workers’ which prevents Janitorial Worker from injuries resulting from during day to day operations such as cuts from sharp objects in garbage, skin infections and other bacterial infections. There is complete separation of garbage from worker. It facilitates a systematic process for waste collection and eventual waste segregation or sorting, which is very important for overall solid waste management process.
‘Technology for Sanitation Workers’, is a manual waste pick – transfer – disposal machine, that picks up garbage, solid waste etc., transfer it from point of use and disposal (direct or indirect) to the point of collection or treatment or landfill; leading to a standardized approach and that too without the use of hands. The technology is helpful in providing a manual & mobile waste tool with picking and dumping function for easier and effective road and public spaces cleaning by sanitation workers. It has Fixed Dust Pan, leg operated stand for placing in rest position. Gripper is very simple and storage space shifted behind the dustbin.
Scalability and Impact:
The technology is helpful in providing a manual & mobile waste tool with picking and dumping function for easier and effective road and public spaces cleaning by sanitation workers. The Technology is transferred to a Gujarat based entrepreneur and is ready to be launched in the market.
