An event called “Kachra Mahotsav” will be organized on April 22-23 in Ghaziabad in which various schools, institutions, not-for-profit organizations, industry, RWAs among others would be asked to encourage proper disposal of waste so that it can be converted into manure and or recycled effectively for other purposes. The District Magistrate, Ritu Maheshwari said this in a meeting of Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam (GNN) and GDA, officials. Also present were BSA Vinay Kumar and Principal of DPS Ghaziabad, Jyoti Gupta.
The DM exhorted all citizens to come up with measures for proper waste management and said that the “Kachra Mahotsav” should have proper exhibits and workshop/training session on waste disposal and converting of waste into manure and its use in making different articles. People interested will have to get themselves registered on a portal to come up for this purpose.
CDO Ramesh Ranjan said that machines for waste disposal can be fitted at various waste disposal centres in the city to show to people how the system works, especially the school children.
