Kozhikode city in Kerala is going to start its zero waste project from November 1 this year.

Brainchild of Kozhikode Collector U V Jose, the project is a part of Haritha Kerala Mission of the Kerala government. Citizens’ participation will be an integral part of this waste project.

Jose recently gave a detailed project presentation, providing details about the sustainable waste management solution to dispose the generated non-degradable waste in the district.

“The project was prepared to address issues such as waste generation, segregation, collection, treatment and management,” he said.

Not only the residential houses, but also the commercial establishments and shops will alsp be covered under the scheme.

Local Self Governing bodies will contribute 10 per cent of their plan funds for the waste disposal project.

The collection of plastic waste will be done once a month. Other non-degradable waste such as footwear, carry bags, clothes, glasses, tubes, bulbs and e-waste will be collected in a stipulated timeframe of once in three or six months.

For the collection of non-degradable waste a nominal fee will be levied.

The project will be monitored and GPS system will be installed to track the vehicles transporting the waste.
