Third Follow up for Waste Segregation at Source | April 13

Our volunteers went for a follow-up at 330 households to check whether segregation was taking place. The follow-up took place when Nepsemyak Sewa Pvt. Ltd went to collect inorganic waste from project households at Nagarjun municipality. This is our third follow-up for this project.

Among the 330 households, only 24 houses had not segregated their household waste properly. As the waste was not segregated, the staff of Nepsemyak refused to pick up the mixed waste of such households. The waste was only picked up when the households segregated the waste and requested a pickup. The households have since committed to segregate waste properly.

We observed that most households had inorganic waste packed in plastic bags/ cartons and that they were placed on the streets– in front of their houses or hung on their gates before the arrival of नेप्सेम्याक काठमाडौं’s waste collection vehicle.
