Proposed Project Description

As millions of tons of garbage is being generated each day, it has to be collected, transported, and disposed of the same day. Garbage collection plays a vital role in maintaining the health and hygiene of our surroundings. Around 62 million tonnes of municipal solid waste is generated per annum out of which only 43 million tonnes are collected. The remaining 19 million tonnes end up on streets, blackspots, vulnerable garbage dumps, abandoned plots, overflowing bins, etc., The sheer of unattended garbage causes is fueling air, drainage, soil, and water pollution. While dealing with the garbage the sanitation workers are being directly exposed to varieties of risk-causing materials including dust, toxins, bio-hazardous substances, which makes them vulnerable to multiple diseases and disorders. If it is not managed properly, solid waste can create remarkable health issues and miserable living conditions by giving a hospitable environment for insects, bacteria, and viruses’ growth.


India’s garbage problem needs a solution that is tailored to its unique needs. Jatayu Super is made over 3 years, with 10,000 hours of field data, 10 prototypes, inputs from 10 cities with over 10,000 manhours of design work. Jatayu Machines are supercharging the Swachh Bharat Mission, and they are being supported in this endeavor by the highest level of the Govt. - the Prime Minister’s Office itself. Jatayu Machines are currently operational in 21 cities and 10 states.


Key technologies:

  • Helio boom (Patent pending technology) enables contactless picking up of litter and cover more ground (Boom length and height can be adjusted).
  • Super high dump ™ - Jatayu Super has a large garbage collection capacity(1.5 cubic meters) that ensures long hours of operation and the hydraulics enable the contactless transfer of garbage.
  • Disinfecting mechanism (Super Sanitize), with their onboard disinfection mechanism garbage, can be disinfected before collection, garbage collection points can be disinfected after picking up and frequently touched surfaces on the streets can also be disinfected. (Machine comes with a disinfectant lance attachment)
  • SU-Super connect is the integrated telematics system that comes with the Jatayu Super. Machine location is tracked through mobile/computer, remote machine health monitoring to get real-time alerts and notifications. Regular operations can be carried out with minimal supervision.


What can be achieved with Jatayu Super:

Effective cleaning:

India's first & only complete contactless heavy garbage collection machine run with 1 Driver, 1 Operator which can handle several tons of garbage and disinfect it safely. Designed & Developed for India.

Hygienic (Zero Manual Handling):

Jatayu Super is the pioneer in contactless technology. Zero manual handling of garbage is achieved right from the point of picking up garbage to point of garbage transfer/dumping.

Disinfection of garbage:

Garbage can be disinfected, collected without contact, disinfect the collection point, and disinfect frequently touched surfaces on the streets.


Transforming Chennai: (Success Story)

  • 15 Jatayu Super’s are currently cleaning 45 locations in Chennai daily.
  • Machines were operated for 2,491 hours in 42 days.
  • Whopping 431 tons of garbage collected.
  • 10.3 tons of garbage is collected daily from various locations.



  • Sanitation workers are empowered with contactless garbage collection technology. This provides the sanitation workers and their families with a safe and healthier lifestyle
  • Roadside garbage generally ends up being burnt. This adds to the already polluted air, using Jatayu Super garbage can be cleared and avoid its burning.
  • Drainage blockage, soil pollution, and water pollution from the garbage can be avoided with regular collection.
  • Roads will be well-maintained and cities can be transformed.
  • JATAYU SUPER aids in improving the health and working conditions keeping the communities nice and clean, maintaining municipal wellness, thereby positively impacting thousands of people in the society.
