Plisaru Project

 
Introduction.
 
The aim of this programme is to renew or rectify something as means by the word Pilisaru itself. This concept further means that waste pieces of cloths are maximally reused and only final waste is removed out.
 
At present in almost all urban area removing garbage has become an acute environmental issue. We have forgotten the fact that waste of our daily life are considerable quantity of resources that can be reused. Therefore the prior objective of this Pilisaru programme is to earn money from these waste and reuse them.
 
Biodegradable and non biodegradable waste are in different percentages. Degradable waste are biodegraded due to the action of micro organism and non degradable materials can be reused with the help of novel scientific methods. Therefore it has both bio scientific form and technical form. In this way, environmental and social form with bio scientific and technical form are mixed together and economic form could be given.
 
Accordingly, Pilisaru solid waste management project was started in the year 2009 by Pradeshiya Sabha of Angunakolapalessa with the financial contribution of Central Environment Authority providing a sustainable solution for the burning problem of waste removal for a clean environment and favourable health condition.
 
Functions carried out by Pilisaru project.
 
       Separate waste
 
 
    Manufacturing compost fertilizer using biodegradable waste.
 
 
 
 
 
   Referring non biodegradable waste ( Cardboard, plastic, polythene And glass) separately for recycling.
 
 
  • After manufacturing compost manure, remaining non recyclable waste are used for earth filling.
     
     
    Uses of separation of waste.
     
    Quantity of final removal of waste is decreased. As a result, life time of lands sites of waste could be reduced.
    Additional income can be earned by referring recyclable waste for that.
    Economic benefits could be obtained by way of separating recyclable waste and manufacturing compost fertilizer.
    Environment pollution can be reduced due to low waste of paper, polythene, plastic, iron, tin etc.
    Manufacturing compost.
     
    In the year 2010 production of compost was started and at present production and sale of compost is functioning.
     
    Daily quantity of waste of fair and town of Angunakolapalessa is about 1 – 1 ½ tons. Biodegradable waste are used for the production of compost manure. Garbage are dumped and rolled once a week and used for fertilizer. This process takes a period of two and a half months  (2 ½ months). when the compost is made they are distilled by using the machine.
     
    Quantity of compost sold and income earned.

What happen to non degradable waste
 
Very dangerous gas are produced by burning polythene and plastic and due to long lasting of this poisonous gas in the air, people become victims of various diseases by entering theses gazes into the human body. Therefore recycling is very important as a very practical and effective solution. Polythene, plastic, cardboard and glass that we use in our daily life are reusable resources and therefore they could be converted to money or another product through recycling.
 
In relation to Pilisaru solid waste management project, another programme of recycling of non degradable waste was started in 2010 by Pradeshiya Sabha of angunakolapalessa on the contribution of post use plastic waste management project with the intention of conserving environment and contributing national economy.
 
 
Advantages of recycling non bio degradable waste.
 
Income could be earned by selling non degradable waste
 
Beauty of the environment could be protected.
 
Background can be kept clean
 
Protection from diseases.
 
Our resources could be reused.
 
Production of non biodegradable materials could be reduced.
 
 
Income earned by sale of non biodegradable waste.
