With source Segregation happening the ragpickers don’t have to work in a hazardous environment & they can live a respectable life.
The Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is an intensive, countrywide campaign that will focus on citizen
participation, to be converted into a ‘Janandolan’, where small changes, at the local level, will add up
to significant national gains.
Eswachh is into end-to-end waste management and offers services from Door-to-door collection, segregation, composting & Material recovery. Eswachh is also consulting Cities & ULBs & State govt on waste management using technology. With the use of technology, the ULBs get transparency and productivity but they are also able to see the audit trail of the waste. They are able to identify the residents and outlets that are not doing source segregation.
The residents who attended the event said more such events should be organized to do awareness and change the behavior of the country to segregate the waste at source.
