CitySpidey in association with Rise Foundation, an NGO working on environment conservation, organised a workshop to make the Dwarka community aware about the issue of solid Waste Management at Dwarkadheesh Apartments Sector 12. The event was organised with the support of the RWA of the society for its residents.
On the occasion, Madhuri Varshney from Rise Foundation explained about the concept of the segregation of waste at the source level and how to make compost out of wet waste. She demonstrated the steps involved in the process for a better understanding of the issue. She highlighted data to show how we can help the environment and the community by managing waste at the source level.
She highlighted that about 60% of waste generated from homes is wet waste that can be managed easily at home or at the society level. This could go a long way in saving the environment. She also explained about other non-biodegradable waste which can be disposed of with the help of the authorities.
Residents of the society participated in the workshop and shared their efforts in managing waste. General secretary of RWA, Dwarkadheesh Apartments, Anjana Sinha said, “This was a great initiative done by City Spidey and Rise Foundation. We look forward to inspiring people to efficient solid waste management in daily life. We will be focusing on such initiatives at the community level. I also request South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) to help us in our cause in managing waste.”
On the occasion, General Secretary of Harmony Apartments Sector 4 RWA, Arvind Rudra was also present. He shared his success story of practising composting and waste management in his society. He also asked people to come forward and take such initiatives to help the environment.
