It is important to encourage people to segregate waste at source for proper waste management. It is also important to create awareness amongst the Corporation and residents on how proper waste management can not only protect the environment but can also allow all stakeholders to share value created from the same.
MESN is involved in documentation of good Waste Management Practices in cities and learning methods and techniques which could be used for this purpose. It is also networking with various stakeholders who are working in the area and mobilising them to come together to work on different aspects of waste management such as processes, technologies and methods for efficient waste management. read more

MESN has also helped to set up a biogas plant at ‘Century Hospital’, Chembur and at the ‘Tata Institute of Social Sciences’ (TISS) canteen. The initiatives have helped to build a good practical knowledge of waste management practices.
MESN has encouraged many young talents to take up waste management and some are now working on national level projects to set plants for converting waste into fuel.
