R.K. Yadav, Gurgaon

We stand proud to submit that we are working on swatch bharat abhiyan by adopting a counterpart by name of Swatch Sector Saturday Abhiyan, our sector (sector 46) is the biggest sector of Gurgaon with more than 3500 plots. When the current team was appointed in RWA we were already disgusted by cleanliness problem in our sector.

For countering this we initiated the Swatch Sector Saturday Mission on 28th November 2015 and from that day without any interruption we wake up early on our Saturdays and are joined by hundreds of residents who join the stride to clean our sector.

we felt discouraged when Authorities failed us to provide any kind of help whatsoever, still for achieving the bigger dream of our dear PM Narendra Modi ji and for our selfish(selfish enough for a cleaner India) selves we never stopped the mission and continued from the said date.
in the mission we learnt that mission or initiatives of this type are contagious from the time we started many RWAs and nearby sectors started following the drive. we feel grateful to our dear pm for showing us the path on which we walk proud.

Our Advice to all - Clean Your very near surroundings if everybody does so then only the mission will be achieved.

Swacchta is not the mission of only governments. It is a mission of all of us.

Rakhee Mehta, Mumbai

We read news about the Deonar dumping ground fire in 2016. The subsequent stories of health issues that the locals faced compelled us to think of ways to deal with the grave issue of piling waste in the city. That's when Marathon Realty Ltd (Real estate developers) who also happens to be a member of CREDAI Clean City Movement (CCCM)  adopted the Bio bin system for treating organic kitchen waste in one of its own building named Marathon Onyx. The system uses microbes to convert the waste into compost. This is a very modern,highly effective and quick method of composting green waste. We have successfully composted 5,500 kgs of green waste in the past one year. The resulting compost is nutrient rich and is used for landscaping purposes within the premises.

We conducted an awareness program in the society where we educated the residents to segregate the waste using the three bin system. We have recycled more than 1000 kgs of dry waste till date. The efforts, enthusiasm and support of the residents is commendable.

As a responsible citizen of the country,we would like to spread awareness about this initiative through your channel.

Prakash Bhagwan, Bengaluru

I have adopted a blackspot nearby my house. Garbage gets continuously dumped here on this piece of footpath making people to walk on the road. Apart from pedestrian safety, it is also health hazard breeding mosquito's which could spread dengue. I adopt the use of a tarpaulin sheet to separate the footpath from the road, so that the dumping does not encroach the footpath and people can use the footpath safely. The footpath leads to a playing ground and hence a lot of children and senior citizens use it.

The footpath is hence very critical and cannot be neglected. The tarpaulin separation is self funded and I make sure that I maintain it so that the pedestrians get there space and health hazard is avoided. Today it was the 6th time I mended it with the help of our security watchman Pushkar. We are proud of our efforts. Photo attached shows our cleanliness campaign done today.

Joy Pansari, Kolkata

Taking the cue and the legacy of a clean society forward, we, Joy and Ankit started Ad My Bin, a social venture to clean and spread cleanliness across by installing adbins for waste disposal.

At Admybin we not only address the problem of littering but we create the infrastructure of visible and accessible bins all over the nation we also take responsibility of the management and clearance of the bins. We generate employment for currently unorganized ragpicker community at the same time and our aim is to segregate waste for gradually reducing it to zero.
 
AdMyBin installs Waste Bins with stands that have advertising spaces.

The National Clean India mission has created great awareness among people but due to lack of adequate usable dustbins problem of littering on street is not solved. Usually we associate bins with a dirty container but for us at Ad My Bin, we ensure that bins have an artistic implication with a bright sunny and blue dash of colour where you can advertise your company and reach out to people and also promote social awareness towards cleanliness as a responsible citizen.

We have created a self-sustainable model wherein the dustbins will act as an advertising mode just like a pole kiosk or advertisement hoarding. Our Business model includes the CSR activities of corporates and outdoor advertising needs of brands to get visibility as well as a enhancing the brand image as a socially responsible business.

What makes us different is that apart from the installation we take care of the maintenance of the bins as well. We employ ragpickers for every 30 bins which we install on streets.

Ad My Bin currently has more than 200 installations across different complexes, roads, schools, colleges and parks in Kolkata and further looking for expansion on metro, railways and everywhere in country where bins are required.

We have branded for more than 20 clients across sectors including banks, hotel chains, film production houses, online supermarkets, textile houses, healthcare, travel, online learning portals among others.

We are developing a Smart Bin, in which we would be able to track the waste level inside the bin, along with the count of people crossing the adbins. The pilot testing for this is done and will launch this very soon.

Also we are developing a WiFi Bin which would be a app based reward program for public at large. The technology will make our Adbins the Gateway to FREE Wifi access.

In pipeline we have Jaipur and Guwahati for expansion along with high coverage in Kolkata.

We spend time in the morning and evening hours to go around picking up waste and deposit waste leaves and papers for preparing vermin-compost. The school vermin-compost is used to grow crops like Jowar, vegetables, mango trees, lawns, flower gardens. The waste is converted in to usable manure to keep our campus green.

Two bins One bag - What is the story here?

Two bins One bag sums up the aspirations, research, efforts and dreams of a whole lot of committed citizens working over years to find a solution to our overwhelming garbage problem. 

Segregation at source is the only way to remedy this and here is where two bins and a bag comes into picture. The ease of the formula and the way it instantly cuts down on plastic bags and the need for landfills to accommodate them has made it a resounding success. The colour coded system makes it uniform and effortless to follow. Following the best practices listed, this can be rolled out anywhere in a very short time.

From a small citizen initiative, it has grown into a movement encompassing the whole city and now country. Swachh Bharat can really be achieved only when each one of us takes charge of the waste we generate. Be a part of the dream to transform our country!

"Clean Paonta Green Paonta is an initiative to keep this small industrial town pollution free. Started by a senior citizen Mr. Rajendra Tewari, the idea was to inject this thought in young minds. The uniqueness of this mission cleanup is that young children have taken the cause in their own hands. The town Paonta is situated at the banks on Yamuna River and it becomes all the more important to take care of the pollution of all kinds.

Core group that included SDM H.S. Rana and Mr. Tewari himself, started to speak in schools. Soon the initiative became a mission and school children were motivated to monitor the waste management at their home. Today around 35000 children are part of it and they operate in groups and every group has a name. As an initiative they visit shops and business establishments to inspect, inquire and motivate the respective shopkeepers to handle their waste carefully. They keep a record and also sees the cleanliness around the shops, give there feedback and submit it to the group. This whole program has a remarkable impact on the society. Their effort is bearing fruit and this door to door cleanliness drive is making the city cleaner and healthier.

Clean Paonta Green Paonta no longer stayed a slogan. It has made inroads into the conscience of people at the grass root level. The holy city of Paonta sahib deserved this campaign because as they say 'the love for God is the love to protect the environment'. Cleanliness is a spiritual experience as well. The film is an initiative to support this awareness program."

  1. Today, I had a wonderful experience. Normally, I do Swacch Bharath in the morning. Since I had gone out in the morning, I could do Swacch Bharath work only in the evening. I was doing the cleaning work, an engineering student came behind me and asked, ” Uncle, I am seeing you for the last one month. You are cleaning these pillars. Can I help you?”. On enquiry he had told that he had completed his engineering degree and attending some classes at Hyderabad.
    I said, “Thanks a lot. I am doing a Swacch Bharath seva. Please dont spoil your shirt. Since, you had come from classes, you must be tired”. He smiled and said, “Uncle, I will help you at least tomorrow morning.”. I thanked him for offering help. I could get one friend because of Swacch Bharath activity. Every day my experience is so unique and worth remembering and cherish it.

  2. आज मेरा देश बदल रहा है और साथ साथ मेरा भारत स्वच्छ भी हो रहा है..!स्वच्छता मे तो भगवान निवास करते है तो हम क्यों न स्वच्छ रहे..!!स्वच्छ रहना हमारा खुद का कर्तव्य है न की किसी और की..!!तो आओ हम सभी मिल कर स्वच्छ भारत बनाये…!!
