A great step in sewage management is to process then sewage in BIOGAS units and use the biogas as fuel.Not only this,the biogas sewage sludge which is left over can be used as manure or landfill for growth of POPLAR,which is a shrub which grows into adult plant size in under one year.So an ANNUAL POPLAR BASED SHORT ROTATION COPPICE can be initiated at urban level.This poplar harvest(WOOD) can be used BOTH FOR PLYWOOD MAKING AND THERMAL ELECTRICITY GENERARATION FROM CHARCOAL.PLEASE DON,T WORRY ABOUT CO? FOOTPRINTS WHEN I HAVE SAID'THERMAL ELECTRICITY' , BECAUSE THIS IS A CLOSED CYCLE CO? GENERATION.That means whatever co? is generated by this year's poplar is actually utilized by the next year's poplar crop.This technology is presently being used in England.The requirements needed for this project would be a large piece land,thermal electricity generation machinery,wood cutting manpower and machinery for cutting wood into small chips(for efficient combustion) as well as a very very efficient system for collection of sewage and organic waste.It is best if we can promote WASTE SEGREGATION AT SOURCE.The organic waste consisting of kitchen waste,dried biomass like leaves etc. can also be added to biogas chamber along with sewage.The non organic waste like plastic SHOULD BE RECYCLED.AGAIN FOR THIS ALSO,WE HAVE A GOOD TECHNOLOGY WITH ZERO CARBON FOOTPRINT AND THAT IS CALLED "solar rotational molding" by LIGHTMANUFACTURING.COM.By this technology we can mold the thermoplastic waste into useful products like dustbins,water tanks,etc.SPECIAL MENTION OF PLASTIC BOTTLES:THESE CAN BE USED TO CREATE MANY ACTIVE AND CREATIVE THINGS OF EVERYDAY USE SUCH AS TOYS,MONEY PURSES,ETC and even STREET LIGHTS.YES,STREET LIGHTS.VISIT liter of light.com to know more.PAPER WASTE CONSISTING OF papers ,cardboards etc. constitutes about 50% of an average Indian dustbin.All this paper can be recycled.Many of our municipal corporations are trying to get rid of all this waste by just incinarating it.BUT BELIEVE ME INCINERATION WON'T HELP IN THE LONG RUN.IT ONLY ADDS MORE CO?TO THE ATMOSPHERE.Waste segregation at source and proper processing of solid waste both from dustbins and latrines can alone help our 'SMART CITIES' to :
1)efficiently handle wastes
2)create more job opportunities
3)create a more eco friendly city with minimum carbon credits
4)create amenities such as plastic,wood,electricity,paper within the borders of the city so as to improve the services to people.

Many gram panchayt are mini towns with moren Multi stories coming. After few years they will convert into Cities or get merged into a city.Right now Govt should think of developing habbits of "Dust bins and Ghanta Gadi" culture at Gram panchyat level to collect and dispose off waste in a place so garbage can be sorted out and recycled.
One should start from revers,that is Disposal system is to be established rather than pressurizing on collection and sweeping on roads.

1) In cities / semi urban areas, i don't see any reason why scavengers should be there as city should have good drainage system. Legal localities in cities which don't have drainage system, govt should come up with some mechanism to deal with it.

2) In villages, toilet pit should be created deep in such a way it doesn't need any scavenger and the waste should be converted automatically to some sort of fertilizer etc. I am sure there should be some cost effective scientific solution for this.

It is sad reality of our country that all the cleanliness and piousness is only confined to religious activities or kitchen. At the most we keep our own house clean and it is of no concern about street,lanes, park or the public place. Even after 67 year independence. A new government came into power and one of it's priorities are to make India clean. and for the same objective government launched a scheme in the name of swachh bharat abhiyan.

आदरणीय प्रधानमंत्री जी केंद्र सरकार के कई दफ्तरों मैं चालकों के लिए शौचालयों की व्यवस्था नहीं है जिस कारण कई दीवारों पर गन्दा करते है सरकारी चालक तो बिल्डिंग के अंदर चले जाते हैं पर अनुबंध वाले चालकों के लिए कोई व्यवस्था नहीं है अतः आपसे अनुरोध है की उनके लिए छोटी सी जगह पर शौचालय का निर्माण कराया जाय जाए ताकि कुछ योगदान वो भी दे सके स्वच्छ भारत मैं।

Manual Scavenging is an act where one degrades the act of cleaning the toilet, sewers and the septic tanks. The same act is a profession when departments of the government and private companies are involved in the act of managing sewers and sewage treatment plants. I have a sewage treatment plant in my home and I operate and monitor it with social and environmental responsibility.http://www.thehindu.com/features/homes-and-gardens/design/a-sewage-treat...
