India goes high tech to beat wasteMay 26th, 2016
The southern Indian city of Visakhapatnam is going to introduce GPS enabled chicken waste collection to ensure that the waste is not thrown on the street. Waste collection vehicles will have GPS tracker which will record all the places where it has stopped for collection. For compliance daily entries will be matched with the database of butchers and poultry producers at different locations. Such a system is already in place in another Indian city. We want to look at the potential effectiveness of this system, how much it costs and its potential for its additional use across the country.
