Residents of Anusandhan Apartments, a residential society in Sector 6, Dwarka, are set to adopt composting and waste segregation methods following a workshop organised by Dwarka Forum on waste management on Tuesday.
Residents of the society, members of the managing committee and members of Dwarka Forum, including Madhuri Varshney, the president of the forum, discussed the subject at the community hall of the society.
Swarna Lata, an expert from Dwarka Forum on the subject, delivered a lecture and tried to raise awareness about the waste segregation and its benefits. She also responded to queries from residents and appealed to the members of the managing committee to adopt composting as soon as possible.
Lakhvinder Singh, secretary of the society, said, “We are happy that such an important awareness workshop was held by the Dwarka Forum team and Madhvi Kane, one of our residents, who took the initiative for the workshop. Now, we are going to have a pit for composting and give separate dustbins to the residents to segregate garbage.”
Madhuri Varshney, president of Dwarka Forum, said, “We are trying our best to promote the composting and waste management in the society. The support from various societies has been very encouraging. The response at Anusandhan Apartment was great today. Last Sunday, we had a similar workshop at Jhelum Arorvansh Apartments (Sector 5, Dwarka) and that was successful too. This month we have planned two or three more such workshops in other societies.”
According to a Dwarka Forum volunteer, who was also present at the workshop, the group has also been promoting the campaign on social media and by emails.
