We all segregate wet and dry waste at home – BY DEFAULT!

Category:Solid Waste Management Tags : 

demonstrated by very young kids at National Public School, Bangalore.

400 children from class 3 & 4 assembled in their auditorium, to learn about waste management. 20 children were randomly picked from the audience and invited to stage. On the

stage we created, side by side, a Kitchen and a Bedroom. Both the Kitchen and the Bedroom had a waste bin & a table each. On the Kitchen table we kept a plate with banana &
each child on the stage was asked to pick up the plate, go to the dining table [kept at center stage], eat the banana and after eating remove the plate from dining table.

Out of the 20 participants, 1 threw the banana peel in Bedroom bin, 3 of them threw it in the Kitchen bin and 16 of them kept the plate back [with banana peel] on Kitchen
table.

We were able to show the audience, that all food waste went to kitchen, without us telling them to take it there.
IF ALL THE FOOD WASTE IS TREATED AT SITE, THERE WOULD BE NO LANDFILL!
