Rendezvous – Waste Management Begins at Home
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Pune, March 2016 : Disposal of waste is largely being seen as an environmental hazard. It is proven to have negative effects on habitat, wildlife and biodiversity. In other words waste disposal is not sustainable and can have negative implications for future generations.
“Most contemporary methods of waste management are focused at a governmental or industrial level. However waste generated everyday from our houses is equally responsible for this menace.” said Dr. Vinita Apte President, TERRE Policy Centre. In light of the same and in order to sensitise civic society TERRE Policy Centre invited Mr. Ganesh Kadu- Corporator Panvel Municipal Council and expert in Waste Management, to speak on effective waste management techniques that begin from our homes.
Mr. Kadu gave a rather detailed and insightful talk on methods of composting waste. The audience was interests and eager to know more about these methods and assured us that they would begin this process of appropriate waste management at home.
