Awareness Session with Ladies of sector 15-A

Segregation of waste is the most important step for the waste treatment. If the waste is not segregated, it all gets mixed up in landfills resulting in release of toxic gases and harming the environment. To make this understand to the community, HCLF conducted an event with the ladies of Sector 15-A on waste segregation. The event started with explaining the importance of source segregation to the women. They were asked to start segregating the waste in their own houses and kitchens. To make the program interesting and more relatable, we chose to have a quiz and an activity on segregation. We placed 2 bins (blue and green) & 1 bag on the table. Green bin indicated wet waste, blue bin indicated dry waste & the bag indicated hazardous waste. We had different waste items like aluminium foil, fruit peels, sanitary napkin, plastic container, empty milk packet, used tea bags & asked women to categorise these items into dry, wet waste and hazardous waste. The event was a great success and the vice-president asked us to get a system in place to manage the horticultural waste of the sector.
