In 2016, EcoPro was asked by an industry group settled in Rajapalayam to collaborate with their industrial units, with schools and colleges sponsored by them, and with the Rajapalayam Municipality for an improvement and upgrading of solid waste management services. Though of late we had no opportunity to work with the Municipality, we are engaged in residents’ education on waste segregation and developing a project of semi-centralized composting in selected wards, and in setting up and monitoring waste segregation and compost use in industries and in schools and colleges. A brief study of water resource management in Rajapalayam, a survey of public sanitation in a few wards, introducing the concepts of ecosan, and the upgrading of wastewater treatment systems are additional components of this collaboration.
