Managing Solid Waste: whose responsibility?


Once again streets of Kathmandu start to stink after Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) fail to dispose tons of garbage to its regular landfill site at Okharpouwa. Chances of health hazards are enormous and there are many hurdles to solve this problem but changing our habit in throwing away waste at home could be one best solution. Dumping paper, glass, plastic and bio degradable waste separately will give a good option to recycle them, cutting down the amount of solid waste by 50 percent.

  37. I just want to say I’m very new to blogs and truly liked your website. Most likely IÔÇÖm planning to bookmark your blog post . You amazingly have fantastic articles and reviews. Thanks for sharing with us your blog.

  38. I would like to use this photo for educational purposes as part of a nationwide campaign here in NZ – about Nepal for the coming year – please could you advise who the photographer is for permission to use.

  39. Yes such a disgrace.
    The attitude of the people hasn’t changed at all.
    People are getting modernized, in the cities, in terms of clothes, use of technology, but not in terms of civic sense and duties. I think what should be learnt is that you should consider the city just like you do to your own room or house.
    One huge part that we can play in is to use only what we need and reusing it as much as possible.
    As Shutter Bug has said D2H hikers use plastic bottles, till this part it is OK, but all are just thrown out in the hiking trail. They don’t even care to throw it in the proper place. May be reading this post “SABAIKO GAINTO MA GHAM LAGCHA HOLA”.

  40. Paul is absolutely RIGHT. It’s all about our ATTITUDE in finding such simple answer. Hats Off to Paul’s insight.

    Like he said, Hope D2H cares to put little effort to cut down use of plastic not just inside office, also out-there in the field as well. I have seen many D2H hikers using plastic water bottle instead of using ONE permanent bottle. From our individual level we need to opt for Reduce, Reuse and Recycle culture to find more such simple and sustainable answers.

    Let me share you this video clip from my goodold friend’s Blog: Pradeep Paudel, which I think is relevent here. He and one of his friend Javier Morales has some interesting answers, how we can change our Attitude and be environmentally friendly.

    Check his Blog “Being An Example!”

  41. Lets learn some lessons.

    The answer to the question “Managing Solid Waste: whose responsibility?” is simple. Let’s first answer the question “who is producing such solid waste?”. The answer is I, We. Then, it becomes our responsibility for managing our own waste products. But how? …We need to change our attitude.

    Suppose, you eat a chocolate. It’s tasty, isn’t it? But, what do you do with the wrapper? Do you keep it with yourself to throw it at proper place or you just throw it anywhere u like? It’s heavy to carry even a weightless wrapper in your pocket, and throw it at a proper place? Why is this?… It needs strong motivation and willingness from inside to do a simple thing like this.

    Another thing, i have seen in the office is the use of lots of plastic glasses. I think, if we keep one permanent glass or a bottle for drinking purpose, we could reduce the use of such plastic utensils. Hope this small effort will add some touch to solid waste management from our side.

  42. may b we should stop using plastic bags but we r so used to it now it ll be so difficult until some laws are implemented.

  43. Well DreamSky, I can’t’ tell whether these cows are getting benefited or not. But I sure can tell how their health is going to get complicated by gorging plastic bags and many indigestible objects in that heap of garbage. There was one reporting last year that Vet of Animal Hospital at Teku, found a spoon in stomach of a cow and had to operate to remove it. So, I guess garbage is not a good grazing ground for cows.

    Recycling is the BEST option without a doubt and let me cite the world ‘IMPOSSIBLE’ in a positive way: I M POSSIBLE. So, shall we stress on this ‘I’ to make things possible, instead of asking WHO?

    Many thanks for your regular comments.

  44. bitter reality ­čÖü But at least cows are getting benefited by these garbage piles ­čśë

    I guess its soon going to be solved.
    ‘Recycling’ is a good option – who is going to take the first dive?
