We drew inspiration from CRT's processes for on-boarding stakeholders with a visioning workshop, training and route planning for municipal teams, and running a targeted awareness campaign for residents. I remember being struck by the entrepreneurialism and creativity that they have shown in reforming the municipal solid waste management process of Aurangabad.
The Zone 6 MRF is truly a model and demonstrates effective dry-waste management. It should be replicated, and all residents and corporators alike should see that having such a facility is a boon to their ward and the city. This center not only manages waste but is also helping to spread awareness about waste reduction, my congratulations to all partners involved -, Bajaj Auto and CARPE and my colleagues from the AMC, and each of the Safai Karamcharis who have made this possible.
Bajaj has always been at the forefront in performing its social responsibilities and with the same commitment we work with team CARPE. We are impressed with the way the team has transformed the way municipal waste is managed. We appreciate the way they have enhanced livelihoods of waste pickers and how they have enabled the sanitation team to be the flag bearers of waste management.
The BAJAJ Majhi City Swachh City Campaign by CARPE has done a commendable job in Aurangabad Municipal Corporation with respect to Solid Waste segregation and behaviour change in citizens. The State believes that capacity building of city officials and behavior change in citizens is imperative to achieving the vision of a Swachh Bharat.
I brought CRT on-board to transform the SWM situation on-ground, which they did very fast and effectively. And as a bonus, we cracked the Swachh Survekshan in the most rewarding and sustainable manner.
In all my years of working so hard, I did not see any dignity in this field. But after coming to this centre I have received safety, better earnings and respect. My family and I now feel glad for my work.
