The residents of Navi Mumbai had quite an amazing experience at the three-day long mega exhibition ‘Zero Garbage Fest’ at Kamothe. This exhibition showed some cool things like segregating kitchen waste and process of composting. This exhibition was hosted by the solid waste management wing of Panvel City Municipal Corporation (PCMC) from 17 to 19 November. The main goal of this exhibition was to raise awareness about the importance of cleanliness around people’s neighborhood, and even find a mention among the top 10 cities in the nationwide Swachh Survekshan drive beginning from January 4, 2018.
The visitors were quite pleased and requesting more such exhibitions in their neighborhood to educate and help people to use simple tips on how to convert kitchen waste into compost and decrease the heavy dumping of waste that can cause hazardous health issues.
Mangal Kamble, head of Swachh Kharghar Manch, who visited the expo said, “It happened to be a fantastic concept to connect the people with the cleanliness campaign promulgated by the civic body under the leadership of PCMC commissioner Dr. Sudhakar Shinde. It was a must watch site which I could not afford to miss. We can replicate the knowledge gained from the expo in our society to be featured in the zero garbage league.”
