How a waste segregation programme, ‘Alag Karo’, has made all the difference in Gurugram

One of the largest gated residential apartment buildings in Gurugram is Orchid Petals — with 25 towers, 32 villas, and 6,000 residents. The 1,532 households here generate 1,900 kg of waste every day, of which 1,000 kg comprises wet waste. Of this, the housing complex recycles 700 kg of dry waste per day, collects e-waste separately and has a composting unit for organic waste. It took about seven months to achieve these 95 percent segregation levels.

Plastic finds its way into Lalbagh flower show

Written by

BBMP officials and citizen volunteers display the polypropylene bags seized from vendors at the Lalbagh Flower Show on Sunday.

 

But there have been definite improvements because of designated food zones and water dispensers, say activists

Despite the civic body’s efforts to ensure an eco-friendly Republic Day Flower Show at Lalbagh, it was unable to enforce the total ban on plastic. Several vendors continue to use non-woven polypropylene (NWPP) bags in violation of the rules.

Since the start of the show on January 18, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials have seized around 25 kg of polypropylene bags from vendors. On Sunday alone, 5 kg of these bags were confiscated.

Manoranjan Hegde, BBMP's Chief Health Officer, who headed the inspection team to Lalbagh on Sunday, said, “Vendors have been warned against the use of NWPP bags. The BBMP will start penalizing offenders from Monday. Most vendors know about the ban. When they see an inspection squad, they try to hide them.”
