Zero Waste Management
earth&us worked extensively on zero waste management with the Department of Town Panchayats in Tamil Nadu. The Department is responsible for the municipal administration of 528 Town Panchayats with 80 lakh (8 million) inhabitants. Having conducted a detailed survey by visiting 22 Town Panchayats, the team developed a training programme for the municipal staff and waste generators including households and shopkeepers. The training material took the form of 7 booklets covering a plethora of topics on waste management. The team also conducted training workshops for the senior municipal staff which was well received.
