Problem:
Waste management in rural India is beset with challenges that are vastly different from that of urban India. As per a recent survey nearly 80% of rural households do not have access to a regular waste collection service. Lack of reliable sanitation infrastructure also means that liquid and blackwater waste are bigger problems than solid waste. One of the key drivers of rural waste management is the Government of India's Swachh Bharat Mission that dictates detailed guidelines and methods for fulfilling the mission in rural areas. The key to sustainable waste management in rural areas is decentralized planning, and ownership of day-to-day delivery by local civic bodies like Village Panchayat. 

Deliverable:
Design an end-to-end waste management process for implementation at scale in rural districts of India.
