Clean up Nepal facilitated training on waste management in one of the communities of Budhanilkantha. The clustered community consisted around 18 households and a factory of hemp products. The training emphasized on five components– introduction to ongoing waste related practices; waste segregation; 3Rs– Reduce, Reuse and Recycle; composting and impacts of open air waste burning.
It is often observed that “awareness” could be the key to waste management related solutions. The awareness program at Budhanilkantha cluster followed up with immediate clean up in their premises. The litterbug alley got tidy within an hour. A robust guidance is all that is required.
