Can Condemned Ktc Buses Make Goa Cleaner And Reduce Waste? Yes!

The issue of waste is a worldwide problem. It leads to air pollution and contributes to the greenhouse effect. Segregation of waste is important because it makes recycling easier which means less waste. The Goa Waste Management Corporation came up with the idea of obtaining twelve condemned buses from the Kadamba Transport Corporation Limited and transforming them into portable items for waste segregation in each taluka.

This waste wagon project involves restructuring the buses’ bodies. They will have segregation bins that can be opened and operated, a motorised ramp that can help the staff move trolleys, tables, and even a screen which serves as an interactive element for the public. The corporation collaborated with UNDP and made a prototype of a condemned bus for waste storage and segregation at events. The prototype has already been used by religious groups, schools, and other locals.

There is hope that this waste management project will inspire behaviour changes in people, promote knowledge about managing waste effectively, and produce awareness which will lead to waste reduction and a cleaner Goa.
