Waste Management sensitization effort reaches out to students of Army Public School

GANGTOK, 08 Aug: ENGAGE 14, the initiative of Gangtok Municipal Corporation to sensitize school students on the aspects of Solid Waste Management and inspire them to reduce, reuse and recycle reached Army Public School on Thursday with its second phase intervention called “ENGAGE Discussion.”
A press release informs that the students of the school were sensitized on their roles and responsibilities in keeping Gangtok and Sikkim neat and clean. They were also made to understand the difference between dry waste and wet waste and were motivated to segregate the two wastes separately. The students of the school were further encouraged to reduce and reuse whatever they can so that the waste generation and dumping can be lessened at the landfill.
The intervention further provided an understanding of electronic waste and encouraged schools to have an ‘e-bin’ where e-waste could be collected and further handed over to the GMC so that the used and unwanted electronic goods can be sent to recycling plants.
Principal, Army Public School, Atula Jamin Singh thanked GMC and 24hours Inspired team for facilitating this intervention for the students of the school.
ENGAGE Discussion is a part of the ENGAGE 14 initiative, a seven months intervention of the Gangtok Municipal Corporation to reach out to schools across Gangtok to sensitize the students about reducing, reusing and recycling. ENGAGE 14, a GMC initiative is powered by 24hours Inspired.
