Promoting waste management through street play

Noida: To attract eyeballs to solid waste management, the Noida Industrial Development Authority, the enforcement agency, recently organised a street play on the theme at Sector 34. The play was aimed at inculcating the habit of segregating dry and wet waste at source. 

According to officials, the authority roped in HCL Foundation, a private agency, for effectively creating awareness among residents. It was the agency that organised the street play to draw the attention of citizens towards the management of solid waste. 

On the same lines, a team of professional theorists yesterday (January 19) staged the street play, considered to be one of the effective ways to educate masses, to attract residents' eyeballs towards how the waste can be managed effectively and the advantages of managing waste especially the kitchen and dry waste. 

KK Jain, president of the federation of RWAs, Sector 34, said, ''We did our best, I am hopeful the residents of my sector would switch to the scientific and systematic ways of waste management.''

He further said, ''If the majority of the residents start segregating the waste at source and disposing it at home, the transportation cost over waste collection can be saved. It will also help keep our entire premises neat and clean.'' 

The residents, especially RWA office-bearers, asked what if the waste is not segregated. Will it be feasible then for them to run a waste compost plant in society? 

Dharmendra Sharma, general secretary of the RWA, said that the enforcement agency is running a scheme to set up biomethane plant at the sector for disposing of kitchen waste naturally. It requires dry and wet waste segregation. 

''If the waste was not segregated, how will it be possible to run the plant. Considering this, the awareness campaign is being carried out for all the residents of the sector,'' he added.
