Webinar on Conversion of Dhalos to Scientific Transfer Stations

Dhalaos (receptacles) are a presently used as waste collection points in most cities in India. However, in case of delay in collection, garbage often spills onto the road generating stink and raising fears of rodent infestation and disease outbreak. Transfer stations on the other hand, will help reduce the manual handling of waste and also spillage of waste during transportation.
