CREDAI Clean City Movement
“CREDAI Clean City Movement” was set up in 2007 in Kochi, Kerala, when the city of Kochi encountered a serious problem in the management of Municipal Solid waste due to the shutdown of its landfill site. The decentralized solid waste management model created by the CCCM for High rise apartments/ Gated communities, has become a success and is being implemented across various cities in the state.
CCCM operates in 7 cities of Kerala covering more than 600 High rise complexes and Gated communities covering about 40,000 homes. It implements an Eco friendly Aerobic composting system at the project site. CCCM operation currently processes 1200 tons of bio degradable waste per month and around 70 tons of Non degradable waste is sent for recycling. CCCM is the “Authorized Service Provider to Suchitwa Mission” Government of Kerala.
WHY CREDAI CLEAN CITY MOVEMENT?
Emptying the designated garbage spots and transporting the garbage to landfill sites is not a sustainable model for waste management. A decentralized community level solid waste management system at the source is the best option for current scenario . The CREDAI CCM model is an initiative aimed at zero or minimal discharge of waste to landfill by composting wet waste and recycling dry waste. The CCCM is identified in the Manual of Waste Management published by the Ministry of Urban Development as the most replicable model for handling domestic waste.
