Solid waste management
Solid waste management COLLABORATIVE INDIA and NEPAL We do not inherit the earth from our parents we borrow it from our children. A growing population and economy, which means increased volumes of waste generated. This puts pressure on waste management facilities, which are already in short supply. Therefore in this project of ISA, we focused on solid waste management in India and Nepal. Students of classes VI to X participated in this project and they learnt the method of how waste can be turned into a useful resource to meet our energy needs. Students carried out an exhaustive research on solid wastes generated in their country. A well-researched PPT shall be shown in assembly to the students to make them aware of the different kinds of solid wastes generated in Nepal and also how they are classified as biodegradable and non-biodegradable wastes. Thereafter, the students did a survey in their respective countries at three places (schools, malls and hospitals) to collect data on the quantum of waste generated at these three places and categorize them as biodegradable and non-biodegradable wastes. Finally to get a clearer picture, the collected data graphically represented through pie charts. The complete information shared with the partner school, via e mails and the common Blog created and same put up on a common Blog. Students of the schools conducted an Audit for the waste generated in their respective school and disposal methods adopted for their disposal. Based on the Audit Report, Students embark upon a Waste Minimization Plan.
