Advocacy against Solid Waste Burning 16-02-2022 Environment


Most of the waste collected from various colonies is burnt by the Safaikarmis due to lack of information & supervision. The fumes & dust from waste burning becomes a major source of air pollution also known as ‘Smog’ and causes breathing problems to residents especially during winter season.

MCF has actively advocated against the malpractice of waste burning, and has assisted MNN in spreading public awareness and identifying common spots of waste burning.
