It is time we accepted that each household and commercial establishment is a waste generator and so a potential polluter Last fortnight, I discussed the need to reinvent garbage management in our cities so that we can process waste and not “landfill” it. This, as I wrote, required households and institutions to segregate their waste at source so that it could be managed as a resource. It also means that we need to limit how much is dumped by imposing a tax on landfill. I want to follow up on this idea this fortnight.
City needs high parking charges to control traffic chaos and dampen parking demand and car usage. Higher revenue from increased parking charges should be reinvested to improve public transport
This is a proposal from the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) for the implementation of decentralised waste water technologies in the municipal zones of Shimla where currently centralised sewage treatment systems do not exist.
