Waste management BoA
Explain your idea in details:
I have an idea of a new management system in which we will collect waste from people and in exchange of this we provide them some money. The collected waste is used for making various things like by the collected plastic we manufacture roads , fuel , electricity, homes at very low prices etc and various other things which can later be sale in the market by generating a clean environment and employment to the people. The management convert the green waste into fertilizers which later can be sell to Farmers at very low price and reducing the waste in our society. People of all class provide their home waste to us and they will stop throwing their waste on roads in avarice of money that we provide them in exchange of waste. This is a very effective way of waste management. We also have thought to collect residual of crops after cutting , this crop is burned by the farmers and increase the carbon footprint in a direct way and we collect this for free from them and use them for manufacturing furniture , homes , etc. and in this way we can also reduce the carbon footprint. It will create employment to low class people which indirectly helps us to reduce the carbon footprint indirectly.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
People of all class has benefits of this management system . They are : 1. They receive the money even in exchange of their waste. 2. It reduces the waste and plastic in environment and provide a very good method for waste management. 3. It reduces the carbon footprint indirectly or directly both. 4. It increase the use of waste products which reduces the exploitation of raw materials from the nature. 5. It provide employment directly or indirectly to many people..
Plans for implementation and sustainability
I am still planning the idea but It has great potential. I try to collect data for that who can finance this idea but I know there are a lot of people who want to finance this idea when I present it before them. I will have collaboration with local municipal authorities, some waste managing small industries , and with some large industries for transfer of technology.
