Ahead of the Ganesh Festival,city-based SWaCH organisation has decided to deploy their representatives at 15 spots for nirmalya collection. The organisation has identified spots for collection in each wards. Last year,the organisation had help collect and recycle 90 tonnes of garbage. The organisation has urged people to come forward and help them with the collection. It is extremely satisfying to be part of such a campaign. I will be there this year too, said Shrenik Mutha,a volunteer from Fergusson College.
