These days garbage and its disposal is a rising issue not only in our country but throughout the world. A large amount of waste is collected from the residential areas, industries, hospitals, etc. This waste is further taken to landfills where it is either buried or burned. Neither one is good for us or for the environment. Burning garbage releases dangerous gases and dust which contribute to global warming and Burying garbage also causes both air and water pollution. And the rest which is left at the landfills releases hazardous chemicals, gases, and toxins that seep into soil and water. During this corona pandemic increase in the waste due to non-reusable masks is a concern. These masks are abandoned everywhere, on the streets, in public areas, in water channels. Disposal masks contain plastics that pollute water and can harm animals who eat them or get tangled in them. For this issue, 27-year old Binish Desai, known as the recycle man of India, came forward with a solution to convert biomedical waste especially single-use masks, head cover, and non-woven PPE kit into bricks. To make people more familiar with this concept of bricks from the waste we intend to make this website. According to this project, some trash cans are kept in residential areas where people will collect their masks. Further, the trash collecting truck by the municipal corporation will collect those in a special box kept in it for masks collection from all over the city. These boxes will be transported to the dumping yard which will be collected from there. After collection, it will be further sent to the address provided by Dr. Binish Desai. This project will help in the proper disposal of large amounts of bio-medical waste.

What it does

It creates technical support, software background and interface for mask collection task fulfilling the requirement by SPPU for PBL subject eventually improving our coding skills.

How we built it

We Built it using basic Programming languages such as HTML, CSS, JS, Bootstrap, PHP, Mysql.

Challenges we ran into

We faced challenges while uploading the site on the free server as the free server can't carry a huge load.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of our team for contributing to social service as a huge collection of masks can leads to a future pandemic.

What we learned

Giving solutions to real-life problems is the best task an IT/ Software Engineer can do and solving social and Environmental issue.

What's next for Mask Recycling Analytics

If conducted on a large scale our project has a high scope in reducing the mask waste. This certainly impacts not one but many factors, leading to a clean and green environment. It's a simple initiative to take up for everyone, throw it but in the right place. It needs little advertising and is possibly the easiest of methods to terminate mask waste. Not only it can reduce mask waste, but promote people in participating in healthy activities.
