No to litter campaign

The no to litter campaign under the flagship theme “clean environment” was initiated and carried out by our ENFOGAL team at multiple places within the town as well as outskirts of the town including some villages. The campaign was initially consisting of Six phases but to reach huger public about actionoriented activities another three follow up were introduced. The campaign lasted from November 2017 till May 2018. During the ongoing activities it was learnt that litters were improperly, without any consent, disposed at an inappropriate location, waste generation was immense, inadequate community dustbins, absences of dustbins at shops. Lack of education and awareness on waste management. Commonly found waste around the town consists of plastic snack wrappers, tobacco wrappers, plastic bottles and other miscellaneous waste. Most of this waste can be categories into reusable and salable, with proper waste management system these wastes could be effectively channelize into monetary values and other purposes. Eventually this will help reduce the amount of waste going into landfills abating its effects on environment. Adding success to the campaign was the volunteers, who willingly dedicated their valuable time and energy for a common cause. the undying support from Swachh Bharat Mission and Autonomous District council not only boosted our morale but their contribution through various other means have incredibly helped us to carry out our campaign successfully
