Powai residents begin garbage segregation in their areas

Eager to make their area a zero-waste zone, citizens of the ‘s’ ward in Powai  have chalked out a plan for a more efficient waste disposal system which includes special attention to garbage on roads and CHS.

Over 150 citizens were educated on garbage segregation by the chief of A.L.M.s Ms Seema Redkar of the BMC in Powai.

Advanced Locality Management)ALM) is local management of solid waste by citizens who organise themselves to manage their waste.

For the very first time the chiefs of the CHS cooperative housing societies were invited to officially register and join the ALM s of Powai, so that under their leadership the entire lane or society can segregate wet and dry garbage. Some housing societies in Powai have special house keeping management therefore it is important for the managing committees of each building to educate the setup as well as its members to segregate at source.

A Kale, the Additional Municipal Commissioner of the ‘L’ ward was present and also educated the public, “When citizens have the right to demand cleanliness from the civic body, they also have a duty. Citizens must ensure they adhere to rules on segregation of dry and wet waste.”
