The primary objective of this project is to create awareness about the people living at this dumpsite to assist residents to separate their waste and mark hazardous waste clearly. The outcome is that 20% of the waste disposed at the dumpsite is separated which will lead to improved health for its residents and increased recycling. This in turn will result in additional revenue for this community and reduce the air pollution from burnt plastics and other waste fractions.
