Wet Waste Delivery Rate (KPI-11)

The quantum of the daily wet stream collected from within the municipal limits and delivered to the Composting Unit by both municipal and other sources

  • Projected generation within the township – 11,200 kgs per day
  • Expected percentage of delivery – 10,000 kgs per day (90%)
  • True increase during tourist influx, fairs and festivals, clearing of backlogs, and cleaning up of dumping black-spots.
  • Apparent increase during wet spells
  • True decrease expected during natural calamities
  • Apparent decrease chiefly due to non-collection (absenteeism of sanitation workers, vehicle breakdown, etc).

Actions to be taken

  • Check consistently underperforming collection circuits
  • Check for roadside dumping in such circuits
  • Check door-to-door waste collection & pickup timings
  • Liaise with sanitation staff, vehicle drivers, and sanitary supervisors
  • Seek community engagement
