Our Objective

The objective of Clean Himalaya is to develop a comprehensive waste management program that will help to:

Protect people, roaming animals, and the environment from toxic materials generated from plastic waste, from mosquitoes that thrive in stagnant drain water that is blocked by garbage, and from disease-carrying rodents that thrive in garbage heaps on the roadside and ravines.

 Reduce global warming through recycling dry waste (polythene bags and other plastics, all grades of paper, glass, batteries) and vermicomposting organic waste.

 Avoid air pollution through unnecessary burning of recyclable waste and developing an eco-friendly way of reusing non-recyclables such as non-degradable packaging material.

 Avoid dumping recyclable and reusable waste into landfills. Serve as a model for Clean Himalaya to expand or for other communities to replicate.
