Kritipur Waste Management Services

Krititpur Waste Management Services

BW2V partnered with Kirtipur's Society for Environmental Conservation (SEC) to create community based SPV called Kirtipur Waste Management Service (KWMS). BW2V provides financial, technical and managerial support whereas, SEC provides services like collection, segregation & processing to ensure a proper and environmentally friendly household waste management program.

KWMS aims to transform the way household waste is collected and managed. It was formed in 2015 in Panga, the western part of Kirtipur.

KWMS's Objectives

  • Provide a sustainable and integrated waste management service.
  • Provide door to door waste collection services to all households in the community.
  • Reduce environmental damage and degradation by proper segregating & processing.
  • Comply with Kirtipur's Solid Waste Management Act and the 2013 Local Governance Framework
  • Set an example on how waste management service can be provided with local participation and make an impact on the community.

As a social enterprise, BW2V focuses on inclusive development where all the stakeholders' common interest are addressed in the waste management industry. This is achieved by ensuring joint participatory model where BW2V brings technical, financial & managerial resources & continue to work together with the local players.

Waste Management at KWMS

In the pastthe municipal waste collection service used to pick up waste from the householdsand directly transfer it to the landfill without segregating &recycling. After taking over KWMS provides door to door waste collection services using its own vehicle and brings the waste to the waste recovery enter for segregation. The waste here is either reused or recycled and only the rejected waste is transferred to the landfill. By reducing the waste sent to the landfill we are minimizing the negative environmental impact. It's a simple process.

  • Households segregate their own waste into wet or dry waste in separate containers - called source segregation.
  • KWMS collects waste from your house and brings it to our facility
  • Waste is processed and separated into three categories
    • Wet, organic waste -> Made into Compost Sold or used in our facility's garden
    • Dry, Recyclable waste -> Sorted and sent to a recycling facility.
    • Dry, Non-Recyclable waste -> Sent to the landfill.
