"We have got narrow streets and alleys. Our disposal system should match the architecture and road systems. It is only partly happening," Ganga Narayan Ghosh told IANS on the sidelines of a media conference here Thursday.

"I have studied the system for over 30 years and have designed and patented three containers that can be used effectively and at a low cost in India," he added.

"Nowhere in India, this design has been followed," said the 83-year-old mechanical engineer who has decades of experience in solid structure handling.

Ghosh has designed elevated, steel structures of varying dimensions catering to housing complexes, homes, offices and other establishments.

"In India, garbage disposal units are of primitive design. My premise is that the garbage container should be above the ground."

"The container shape that incorporates slope at the top and bottom is also unique," said the Houston-based engineer.

According to Ghosh, the elevated garbage storage units ensure the handlers do not come in direct contact with the trash.

Besides, the accumulated waste in the units can be directly loaded into lorries for transfer to the dumping ground.

Ghosh will be travelling to 22 cities in 11 states to create awareness about the containers.
