Integrated Solid Waste Management

Garbage Dot Com will use an Integrated solid waste management involves using a combination of techniques and programs to manage waste and have a tailor made integrated waste management systems to fit the specific local needs of the area we are serving. As GDC we suggests using the following priorities - in order - as tools to help set goals for integrated waste management systems and meet specific local needs.

• Source reduction (waste minimization and prevention)
• Recycling
• Disposal
Integrated solid waste management programs typically begin with waste audits - an assessment of the regular waste stream.

Waste Audits

A waste audit is a formal, structured process used to quantify the amount and types of waste generated by a Community. Garbage dot com ltd is able to carry out a comprehensive waste audit. Information from audits will help identify current waste practices and how they can be improved. A waste audit includes four steps:

• Describing current purchases, use and disposal requirements and methods
• Identifying amounts and types of materials generated, including those to target for source reduction
• Estimating cost savings
• Implementing and monitoring the program

The Audits will help us determine the most appropriate and effective source reduction programs for the area that we are servicing. Waste audits are a key to establishing waste and source reduction programs.

Waste Reduction Strategy

Waste reduction, also known as source reduction or waste prevention, means using less material to get a job done. Waste prevention methods help creates less waste in the first place - before recycling. Because it avoids recycling, composting, land filling, and combustion, source reduction can help reduce waste disposal and handling costs. An example of source reduction is buying products that use less packaging (buy larger containers or refill containers with bulk purchases). It also conserves resources. In conjunction with various stakeholders Garbage Dot com will sensitize the client on the best methods of waste reduction.

The local communities can establish waste reduction goals that require a percent reduction in the solid waste stream before a particular year or period. The community can also encourage programs that are directed at conserving resources and reducing solid waste generation, thereby helping to mitigate the burden of collection, processing, and disposal practices. There are many ways communities can be sensitized so as to modify their current practices to reduce waste generation; some of which are detailed below:

Incentives for Waste Reduction

o "Unit pricing" and "pay as you throw" programs utilize economic incentives to create less waste. The programs charge for the collection of municipal solid waste - ordinary household trash - based on the amount generated away. This creates a direct economic incentive to recycle more and to generate less waste. Another method would be to provide a location for reuse (extra wood/timber, leftover paint, toys, and windows).

Paper Products

o Reduce office paper waste, Use recycled paper, make double-sided copies for offices Replace hand towels and other disposables with hand dryers or cloth towel machines and reusable hardware.

Collection of Waste Strategy

Our local communities use an array of methods to collect solid waste, including the following:

• Curbside or front yard collection, where containers are placed at the curb or front yard
• Backyard collection, where containers are carried from backyards by collection crews
• Drop-off stations, where residents deliver solid waste to a specified site, such as a transfer station, local dumpster, or the disposal site itself.

Waste Disposal Management

Garbage dot com ltd will embrace the below methods of waste disposal to ensure that the waste generated from the client is disposed in an environmentally friendly manner and within the regulations prescribed by NEMA.

Waste disposal management continues to be a rising challenge as population grows and along with the industrial development of countries. Centuries ago, people would have the trash from their homes transported and dumped in the places far away from the city or village.

Today, instead of open dumping, usually the trash is collected and transported to landfills (such as the dandora dumpsite) and then buried. Of course, over these hundreds of years, processes have certainly become more sophisticated. Instead of just burying the trash in landfills, we also use methods like plasma gasification, ocean dumping, incineration and recycling.

Collection Times

Garbage Dot Com Ltd collects garbage from residential customers between 8:30am and 12:00 noon on the particular day of collection, and 8:30am and 4:00pm from industrial/commercial customers. These timings may not be always guaranteed due to weather and road conditions, traffic congestion and breakdowns can affect timings. In case there is a delay in the collection our office will endeavor to inform you on the changes
