The collected waste was segregated and disposed of accordingly. E-waste, biodegradable waste and non-biodegradable waste were disposed of in separate bins. The purpose was to create awareness in the community about keeping the surroundings clean. The school has been declared a plastic-free zone to help reduce our carbon footprints and is making efforts to protect the environment.
