Garbage Vehicle for India
India is amongst the most highly populated country in the world. More number of people mean more amount of waste generated every day. People throw garbage here and there without being aware of the after effects of it. Many places are provided with garbage bins but people do not use them efficiently.
At some places, shortage of dustbins compel the people to throw litter around.rnrnEver wondered what happens to the garbage once you dispose it off in a dustbin or any other location? The garbage is collected by a collection medium, then moved to a central collection zone (more popular as a dump yard). At these collection zones, the garbage is manually segregated by humans and then appropriate post processing is done. Post processing involves recycling, bio-degradation, Landfilling, Incineration etc.
Every kind of waste requires a different kind of post processing. Segregation of waste is amongst the major issue faced in the waste management system. People are not aware of the different types of waste and end up dumping a pile of mixed garbage, making further processing difficult. Some places are provided with segregated dustbins, but even then they are not effective.
The reason being either lack of awareness, or lack of sincerity towards the environment.rnrnThe project identifies garbage trucks as an integral part of the total waste management system. Currently it is just a waste transfer vehicle. The projects aims to design a whole new garbage truck keeping the practical Indian scenario in mind. The new concept will have added versatility with much greater contribution to the waste management system.
Since, the garbage trucks move around the streets continuously, these could also be utilized someway to create awareness about proper waste management techniques. Hence, educating people and inspiring their roles for environmental protection. In short, the garbage truck can be portrayed as a mascot for the waste management system in India.r
