SWMP

Solid Waste Management Programme

RUSTIC has been successfully running a beneficiary-community financed sustainable Solid Waste Management System to safely dispose off 2800 Metric Tons of Solid Waste and recycle the organic fraction to produce 480 Metric Tons of Compost (Organic) Fertilizer per year.

Residents in Khulna City generates around 300,000 Metric Tons of Solid Waste per year. Establishing a beneficiary-community financed sustainable Solid Waste Management System to safely dispose off these 300,000 Metric Tons of Solid Waste and recycle the organic fraction to produce 50,000 Metric Tons of Compost (Organic) Fertilizer per year works out to be 2.7 million US Dollars.

RUSTIC’s Model of SWMP has huge potentials to directly contribute to the following SDGs while it indirectly impacts on other SDGs.

 

Creates 2,500 jobs for 2,500 families with per family annual income of 1,450 US Dollars. This enables the families to enjoy no poverty.

 

Ensures sustainable environment in Khulna City and the city residents enjoy a great improvement in public health issues.

 

Reduces Green House Gas emissions within the city area.



The programme requires a one-off grant to fund the initial capital costs and running costs for the initial six months. Thereafter the programme will be financially self-sustainable through collection of services from the waste generators and the sale proceeds of the compost (organic) fertilizers.

The leadership of the programme as been awarded fellowship from the Ashoka Fellowship for the Innovators, USA and also awarded the Climate Hero Award jointly sponsored by HSBC Bank and the Daily Star.
