What you have to do
You will begin by shadowing an existing team who is making segregation happen. After that, we will connect you to a garbage collector with whom you will work closely on making segregation happen in the locality alloted to him.
As the garbage collector goes from door to door, you will be accompanying him in informing residents on how to segregate and making sure that only segregated waste is collected. In general, wet waste is picked up on weekdays, and dry waste is picked up on Sundays, to avoid mixing of segregated waste. It will be preferred if you have a two wheeler since you will be following the garbage auto across streets. Feel free to bring a friend along.
