The objective of the program, as the name suggests, is to look beyond street sweeping and to adopt a more holistic approach towards waste management. As part of the program, awareness is provided to the residents about the correct waste management practices and how individuals and communities can contribute in reducing the waste being dumped in the landfills. The program involves collection of segregated wet and dry waste from over 22,000 households and shops in 12 villages. The storage space for the dry waste is provided by the Gram Panchayats. Daily collection of wet waste and weekly collection of dry waste is carried out by the collection staff.
Key interventions under this project are:
Dry waste storage bags are given to each household and commercial establishment as part of this program.
