The managing committee of Jhelum Apartments, in Sector 5, Dwarka, with the help of Rise Foundation, a social organisation, organised a workshop on solid waste management today.
Madhuri Varshney, a social activist working on the concept, was also present at the workshop. Varshney gave a presentation on the subject and demonstrated simple ways to manage waste effectively. She cited examples of the societies successful in implementing the concept and encouraged residents to embrace the idea. She also volunteered to help set up a system in the society.
The society's children participated in a competition in which they had to use dry waste to create something of use. They were also given prizes for their efforts.
Rajvinder Singh, the present of the managing committee, told City Spidey that a notice would be put up on the society's notice board on May 8, formally informing residents to support the concept at the apartment level.
