Project proposal

Project Title: Cleaning project proposal

Project proponent: Go Green Company

Summary of the project

  The project idea was prompted by increasing urban pollution, especially in impoverished areas. Research conducted several weeks ago indicated that these individuals lack proper systems of garbage disposal since some of the companies offering these services are expensive. These individuals live on less than a dollar a day, the cost of garbage disposal as per our records indicates that some of the companies charge up to 5 dollars on a weekly basis. Many people, therefore, opted to throw garbage on the streets. Heaps of non-recyclable matter creates a foul smell in the environment making some of these areas inhabitable. The recyclable materials pollute the environment since they are not able to degrade. Several issues arose from the issue of pollution. Most real estate agents claim that these areas are bad for their businesses since most people shun away when the environment is unwelcoming. Some of these areas are therefore left abandoned creating hubs for thugs and, therefore, record higher numbers of crime rates. Huge numbers of street people also characterize them since they readily find food there.

  Go Green Company aims at creating a conducive environment by eliminating recyclable waste. The company encourages the recycling of polyethylene products and, therefore, helps in reducing land pollution. This project aims to create a conducive environment by eliminating both recyclable and non-recyclable waste from these environments.  This project will be a diversion from the original company mission of preventing pollution. It will work to reduce the effects of pollution in the already polluted areas and encourage a more realistic way of garbage disposal and maintenance of cleanliness in the environment. The beneficiaries of this project will be the inhabitants and potential inhabitants of these areas. The other beneficiaries will include the real estate agents that manage home in these areas since clean environments encourage the settlement of people. The major investor in this project will include real estate agents, homeowners, environmental agencies and the Go Green Company.

Project goals

By the end of the implementation of the project, it would have attained the following goals

1.  Encouraged settlement of individuals in these areas

2.  Lessen the burden of garbage collection and dirt in these areas.

3.  Create a recycling where revenues can be generated.

Project objectives

1.  To clean the environment off waste including both recyclable and non-recyclable

2.  To decrease the amount of money people pay for garbage collection by creating a proper system for garbage disposal.

3.  To create a better environment and encourage staying

Stakeholders and customers

As mentioned above, our customers will be the inhabitants of these areas and the stakeholders will include real estate agents, homeowners, environmental agencies and the Go Green Company.

Milestones for the delivery of this project

Some of the milestones will include:

Proper cooperation with the inhabitants since some of the cleaning workforce will come from them.

Since it begins as a non-profit project for the good will of the communities, some of the investors may back out when they lose hopes of returns on investment.

Failure of coordination since most of the project activities overlap.

The project may face resistance from the thugs who view the abandoned places as their hub.

Project timeline

Step 1: The project will begin by creating awareness to the individuals in the community of what the companies decide to do.

Step 2: Recruiting the cleaning team. This will include some of the cleaning companies and willing inhabitants.

Step 3: The cleaning process will commence. A common dumping site will be created where individuals will separate organic from inorganic matter.

Step 4: Recycling of recyclable matter.

Step 5: Creation of a proper garbage system collection through installing of dumping sites.

The overall cost of the project

The estimated cost of the project will be around $15000. This will be broken down as follows.

Since the area is about the 2-mile square, cleaning will take an average of two weeks with a workforce of about 50 people. Each person will earn around $10 a day for its charity work and therefore for 14 days it will be $7000. At the dumping site, the whole process will take $4000 since some of the waste will have to be destroyed and some recycled.  The creation of permanent dumping sites will cost $2000. And eventually the last $2000 will be used to buy equipment needed for this whole process.
