Hubli based Vishwanath Patil has been in the limelight for his innovative solution to waste management. His trust " Swacha Swastha " works to address the waste woes of the city.
His innovative underground garbage bin has special-sensor fitted bins that can send alerts to the officials once 70 per cent of the bin is full to avoid outflow.
The garbage pickup van is automatically operated without any human contact.
The garbage collection system is leak-proof and takes less space. It can also store more dump than a conventional bin.
Patil believes that the concept of this machine may solve the garbage crisis in India.
