Under the technical guidance from SCS engineers, USA and financial support from Abt Associates USA (under a subcontract from USEPA) along with TERI team, our Sourabh Manuja conducted extensive municipal solid waste characterization at Bhandwari landfill. The study was also in kind supported by Municipal Corporation of Gurugram. Study looked at analyzing the fresh waste coming to site for 30 different categories, also capturing the changes in wastes generated from old and new Gurugram region.
The waste bought from working phase of landfill was analyzed by team on tables and weighed for quantifying the exact percentages. The study continued from 22 April 2019- 26 April 2019 gave opportunities for team members as well as interns (hired for the project) from Aligarh Muslim University, TERI SAS and Gautam Budhha University to practically understand and learn the methodology for waste characterization and enable them to replicate such studies all across various locations.
The outputs of the study will not only help to formulate basis for Municipal Corporation of Gurugram to take important decisions in MSW management but has also explored opportunities for undertaking extensive waste characterization studies in future to explore the change in characteristics of waste due to seasonal and festive events.
