Waste segregation

Staff Reporter

Bangalore: Residents of Tungabhadra Block in the National Games Village (NGV) are benefitting from a Zero Waste Management (ZWM) project launched two months ago in the block.

“Our block generated 4,347 kg of waste in one month, of which only 418 kg of dry waste was sent to landfills after segregation. The remaining wet waste was recycled and used as compost. This has enabled us to keep our surroundings clean and use the garbage in a productive manner,” said Meera Rajesh, ZWM convener and coordinator of Tungabhadra Residents' Welfare Association.
