App to make waste management more scientific


‘Suchitwa Kozhikode’ to be functional in a few months

‘Suchitwa Kozhikode’, the mobile application launched by the district administration on October 2, is a first of its kind of effort in the waste management sector. The application, which is a joint effort of the District Administration and Suchitwa Mission under the banner of Zero Waste Kozhikode, is expected to make the data collection on waste collection and processing more scientific.

The mobile application, once downloaded, will record every data starting from depositing the waste in the waste bin to the stage it reaches the material recovery facility. Besides members of the public, the Haritha Karma Sena, the members of the local bodies and the administrators of the application can log on to it to monitor the activities.

“The public gets to know the exact date and time when the waste is being collected and if needed can pre-pone or postpone it based on their convenience and need,” said C. Kabani, District Coordinator of Suchitwa Mission.

A most salient feature of the application is that the user gets rewarded for the waste handed over to the service providers.
