The Consumer’s Responsibility

Segregate at Source

Segregate at Source

The first step in responsible waste management is to segregate at source.

Divide waste into wet and dry waste and dispose in separate bins.

Share Your Knowledge

Share - Interact with your waste collector

Whether it is your office or residence interact/educate your waste collector about segregation and ask them to process the waste separately.

Most of the municipalities in the Country insist on this – check the rules for your locality.
