The zero waste initiative was flagged off at Bhuvaneshwari Nagar on the 16th January, 2011. This effort was entirely driven by the residents of the area. There was a walkathon conducted on the 9th January, 2011 inviting all the residents for a cleanup drive scheduled for the 16th of February. Please find the report for the walkathon here.
Following the highly charged up walkathon, the cleanup drive on 16th January was attended by over 300+ volunteers, when they got together to clean the streets of the locality and take a pledge to initiate Zero Waste in Bhuvaneshwari Nagar. Please find the report of the clean up drive here.
UPDATE: The residents of Bhuvaneshwari Nagar have recently also inaugurated their very own Collection Center at Bhuvaneshwari Nagar.
