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.

Jagran Correspondent, Naya Gurugram: Sourav Ganguly, former captain of the Indian cricket team and brand ambassador of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, was in Gurugram on Wednesday. Ganguly, who came as a chief guest in the Solid Waste Management program 'Alag Karo, Everyday Teen Bin', launched by Sahas Ki, a non-profit organization, said that I have been actively involved in the cleanliness drive for the last three years. I go to various programs, especially whenever I go to school or college, I am amazed to see the enthusiasm of students towards cleanliness. Today's children are aware of cleanliness. They are also aware of cleanliness not only in schools, colleges but also in the house and surroundings. A lot can be learned from children.
