Bandra Reclamation is close to becoming zero-waste

Local groups and the BMC prevent 81 garbage trucks from going to landfill in 2 years

Bandra Reclamation is set to become a zero-waste area. Under a two-year-old initiative, subsidised compost pits are being built in housing societies and maintained through corporate social responsibility funds. Organisers — voluntary groups in the area — claim they have prevented 81 garbage trucks from going to the dumping grounds annually. A project report will be unveiled on Friday.
