Project for removal of non- biodegradable wastes from houses.Kochi will soon have 'Green Volunteers' to collect plastic and e-waste. These volunteers will reach the door steps of every house and collect non - biodegradable waste as part of Government's 'freedom from waste' initiative being implemented by "Haritha Kerala Mission".
The volunteers will collect plastic and paper waste once in every month. They will collect breakable glass materials once in every three months, medicine strips and cosmetic items once in two months, e - waste once in every six months and leather wastes once in a year. The existing 'Kudumbasree' or self-help groups will provide Haritha Sena members. A user fee will be collected from the house holds.
Do you think such projects will help in the process of maintaining a balanced environment? Do you have any suggestions in this connection?
