Effective source segregation is the first step to efficient recycling and reduction of waste. 

Segregation at source is one of the most important activities that we need to carry out for effective waste management. When waste is segregated correctly it makes it easier to be recycled & re-used, with higher potential for recovery. In addition, segregated waste also reduces health and safety-related risks to waste pickers and the community at large. Let us pledge to #StartALittleGood & segregate our waste and thus take the first step towards a cleaner city and a healthier ecosystem!
