IEC prog on waste management in Wokha

Department of Urban Development and Wokha Town Council (WTC) organised an IEC awareness programme & training on waste management with special focus on segregation at source and plastic waste management on Monday, at Town Hall, Wokha. The programme was conducted in collaboration with LIFE NGO Dimapur, with Nicksungla as resource person.
According to a DIPR report, the resource person said proper segregation and disposal of dry and wet garbage paved a way for concepts of waste management such as composting, recycling and incineration. She said it was important to segregate waste so that it could be treated scientifically at the source. In this regard, she appealed to the gathering to maintain a useful waste bin, containers or a bin to deposit such waste so that it can be converted into rich organic compost.
AUDO Wokha, Kiniholi Kinimi said the purpose of conducting such workshops was to sensitise the public in sorting and separating wastes such as wet and dry garbage to facilitate recycling and correct disposal of waste. Around 206 participants representing different wards and colonies, representatives from WDCCI, GBs, all colonies sanitation committee, educational institutions, local taxi union, auto union, shopping malls, SHGs & ALF and Anganwadi Workers under Wokha town took part in the awareness programme & training.
