Four films were made for the training portal of the Ministry of Urban Development, to capture the success stories in Solid Waste Management by the Municipal Corporations of Panaji (Goa), Vijayawada (Andhra Pradesh), Greater Mumbai and Kochi (Kerala). Best practices in terms of recycling, composting and co-processing, among others, were documented.
The module reflects the best practices adopted by the Kochi Municipal Corporation towards source segregation and composting. A stringent legal system coupled with multi-stakeholder participation led to effective waste management in urban places which are devoid of adequate landfill spaces.
