Ecology in the Dham

Hare Krishna

Nitai prabhu I am sorry if I caused any offence with my comment about the waste trucks, it was not intended. I wanted to use it as an example of practicality.

Rupa Raghunath Prabhu has set up some waste collection points in Vrindavan already, they build a ramp and then park a tractor trailer at the ramp, then locals come along with rickshaws and other means and put the waste in the tractor trailer. When it is full it is taken to be emptied, I am not sure where though. So there is already some work being done.

Actually India is very good at recycling, most things here get recycled one way or another, the real problem is plastic, because there is no locally based technology to deal with it. You can sell most of your waste except for the plastic, particularly bags as they are not clean. So if somehow we can put a value on used plastic bags they also will be collected. This was why I suggested the plastic recycling plant, but it has to be able to deal with used bags.

I agree however about trying to keep Vrindavan clean, the system at the moment is everyone puts the waste in the street and then what isn’t eaten by the monkeys, dogs, pigs or cows gets collected every few days.

I have been staying in Punjab for some time recently and here you pay someone Rs.20 a month and they collect all your waste and take it to a collection point where it is removed by the municipality. In Vrindavan I used to pay someone to sweep in the front of my house and remove the waste, but they just dumped the waste in the street. So by increasing the number of collection points like the ones Rupa has built would be a start in the right direction.

Again sorry if I caused any offence, please forgive me.

Your servant
