Indian Green Service, as a part of a consortium of Ernst and Young and TARU, and supported by World Bank, worked in developing a series of models for villages to implement Solid and Liquid Waste Management as a part of the Swach Bharat Abhiyan Grameen scheme. Seven Panchayats were selected in 3 districts, to be developed as "Model Villages". These villages were to be used as a base for implementation of Swach Bharat Abhiyan in the remaining districts of the state.
In the past, attaining Open Defecation Free (ODF) status had become one of the first building blocks towards total sanitation. Effective waste management applications in rural areas could be used to strengthen, upscale and sustain current sanitation initiatives including ODF but given the complexities involved, it remained a non-starter. In the absence of proper disposal and treatment, the waste is dumped in the open and is untreated in large parts of rural areas. The situation also leads to contamination because of waste disposal around drinking water sources. Rajasthan over the last decade, has made considerable progress in ensuring access to toilets for school and Anganwadis (Integrated Child Development Centres), but Solid and Liquid Waste Management (SLWM) has seen little progress. This project addresses the above challenges by building upon the models of SLWM that integrates/promotes ODF sustainability, while creating evidence and learning to influence the policies and practices for improved outcomes of the programs that intend to make India clean

The Tamil Nadu House is the official guesthouse for all government officials from the state of Tamil Nadu. Partnering with the Government of Tamil Nadu, Indian Green Service implemented a model of Solid Waste Management at the State House of Tamil Nadu in New Delhi. This project was done as a part of the Swach Bharat Abhiyan and to be shown as model for other State Houses in the National Capital to follow.This establishment generates primarily biodegradable waste which is converted into compost and used for terrace farming in the house itself. IGS was able to produce more than 3 tonnes of compost in the year 2015-16 from the project. The non- biodegradable waste is converted into recyclable resource and sold in the local market
