21st February 2024: Honorable Defense Minister, Shri Rajnath Singh launched an integrated project by LSA and Lucknow Municipal Corporation to revolutionize the waste management landscape of Lucknow.

Lucknow Swachhata Abhiyan (LSA), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Re Sustainability Limited, has recently finalized a significant agreement with the Lucknow Municipal Corporation that helps to encompass a dedicated effort to transform waste management practices within the city of Lucknow. This revolutionary commitment marks a crucial step towards advancing sustainable and innovative waste solutions in Lucknow.

The agreement encompasses a comprehensive array of waste management services, showcasing Lucknow Swachhata Abhiyan (LSA)’s unwavering commitment to implementing cutting-edge waste management solutions that prioritize sustainability and cleanliness. Key provisions include the efficient door-to-door collection of segregated waste using a smart EV (Electronic Vehicles) fleet, the establishment and operation of Material Recovery Facility (MRF), Transfer Stations, and the meticulous handling of both wet and dry waste transportation to designated processing sites. All operations will undergo 24/7 monitoring utilizing a cutting-edge command and control center in real time. These activities will be progressively and systematically implemented over the next six months.

Within the domain of drainage management, Lucknow Swachhata Abhiyan (LSA) is prepared to execute a systematic cleaning regimen. This proactive approach includes the weekly maintenance of drains measuring up to 45 cm, ensuring consistent upkeep. Furthermore, drains exceeding 45 cm up to 1 meter will undergo thorough cleaning at intervals of once every 15 days.

The company will actively participate in Information, Education, and Communication (IEC) endeavors, striving to enhance public awareness of efficient waste management practices. Commenting on this pioneering collaboration, Mr. Masood Mallick, CEO of Re Sustainability Limited, said, “Entering into this partnership underscores our nation’s steadfast dedication to advancing towards a cleaner and greener environment, epitomizing the essence of a truly Swachh Bharat. Through this collaboration, our objective is to realize the government’s ambitious vision of achieving 100% segregation in every household. With a longstanding presence as a key player in the waste management sector, we remain committed to continual innovation to drive enhanced efficiency. Central to our efforts is a strong focus on inclusivity, with a workforce of 8500 individuals dedicated to the project, particularly emphasizing Women’s empowerment and the integration of informal groups.

Leveraging cutting-edge technology remains paramount, with our adoption of unique and innovative methods such as a zero-emission EV fleet for collecting source-segregated Wet Waste, Dry Waste, and Domestic Hazardous Waste, alongside modern Street and drain Cleaning, Horticultural Waste Collection, establishment, and operation of Material Recovery Facilities, and technologically advanced transfer stations. Our entire fleet is GPS and IoT- enabled, supported by RFID-based monitoring and control systems, overseen in real-time from a state-of-the-art Command and Control Centre. Complementing this, we’ve implemented a highly responsive 24/7 citizen complaint redressal system, an impactful Information Education and Communication (IEC) program, and a pioneering performance monitoring system a first-of-its-kind initiative in India all geared towards delivering a cleaner and healthier environment for the citizens of Lucknow.

We take particular pride in the fact that while the project exemplifies global design, innovation, and technology, its realization on the ground is a testament to “Make in India” partnerships forged with leading Indian and foreign OEMs.”

Shri Rajnath Singh, Defense Minister of India, shared his thoughts on the occasion and stated, “With the launch of this integrated project for solid waste management in Lucknow, we are now part of a mission that not only strengthens the city’s waste management system but also aligns with our combined commitment to environmental sustainability. This initiative signifies our dedication to creating a cleaner, greener future for Lucknow, integrating innovative waste solutions, and fostering employment opportunities, all while contributing to the larger vision of Swachh Bharat. I am hopeful to see that our city, which reflects our cultural heritage, also stands as an example of responsible and forward-thinking waste management practices and environmental consciousness.”

This partnership signifies a significant step towards a cleaner, more sustainable Lucknow.

LSA eagerly anticipates implementing these initiatives and playing a pivotal role in the city’s ongoing transformation into a sustainable mega-city.
