SWACH V Collect and Clean-up Drives Edit

Oct 2008

Pushpak Park and Cosmopolitan Society, Aundh 18 Oct 2008 Edit

SWaCH along with the residents of Pushpak Park and Cosmpolitan organized a clean up and V Collect drive on 18th October 2008.

Residents and SWACH members cleaned up the common garden plot at the end of the lane. The V Collect provided an opportunity for residents to give away accumulated household scrap as part of the pre-Diwali clean ups.

Residents and SWACH are discussing ways of streamlining the waste management system to ensure full coverage of door to door collection, smooth link up with the PMC ghanta truck for secondary collection, and a composting and sorting unit. The PMC and the corporator Mr Bangar have extended support. A proposal for comprehensive planning of the garden plot and public space (where the garbage container was placed earlier) is being developed in consultation with PMC.
