Background: Lack of public health workers always hampers the work of Solid waste Management. But, the salaries and perks in the recent past has been increased to unaffordable level of Urban Local Bodies. In the above circumstances, it is inevitable to engage the private participation to decrease the burden of the ULBs.
1.The participation of tribals in the suryapet was very less and same time yerukala community required rehabilitation from the pig rearing. I have taken the approval of the the then special officer M.C.lal During 2010 for engaging their services in dry waste collection. The total dry waste collected has to be retained by them and same has to be sold in the market.Municipality had paid honorarium to them.They woked for about 2 years during my tenure in suryapet. They collected the dry waste during the nights efficiently. Subsequently, they classified the waste in to different components within dry waste.The staff also cooperated well with the community people. This initiative of rehabilitation was appreciated by the then Collector nalgonda sri.N.Mukhteswar Rao.
2.In khammam, the usercharges were for different establishments were approved by the then special officer, Khammam Municipal Corporation and District Collector sri.Siddhartha Jain. This has become a big task to municipal Corporation and 3 or 4 people have to be engaged for collection. A meeting with the commercial area people was taken and informed to engage a tractor on their.In khammam town, there was a tradition to collect the hotel waste engaging their own vehicle. Similarly, vehicle for other commercial establishments were also engaged. The workers were also belongs to the commercial establishments. This has decreased the burden of the collection of waste in commercial areas and collection of user charges engaging the staff, where staff was shortage.
3.Chicken Waste use to be a menace to the effective solid waste management. Municipal Commissioner ,Khammam sri.B . Srinivas has initiated a meeting with the chicken shop owners to avoid thowing of the chicken waste unauthorisedly. They have agreed for it.already one person was collecting chicken waste to feed the fishes they are rearing. This method of collection was strengthened.This has averted the illegal dumping of chicken waste.
4.The tender coconuts ware the main source of mosquitoes breeding. The mosquitoes borne diseases were more prevalent in the khammam. Unless the tender coconuts were properly collected and disposed off, the problem remains. This was sorted with the help of the then district collector Sri.Srinivasa srinaresh.He sanctioned a tender coconuts crushing machine. A meeting was convened with all coconut sellers and to handover the coconuts to process plants at designated places. They engaged their own tractor and collected tender coconuts.This has largely averted the garbage problem and mosquitoes menace.It is also one of the reasons for the mosquitoes control.
