We promote the waste segregation program at the source of production level (household’s kitchen). From the past two years, 3,000 families of Ichangu Narayan and Sitapaila VDCs of Kathmandu district are segregating the household waste into two parts (degradable and non-degradable). For this purpose, two separate buckets, green for degradable and red for non-biodegradable waste, has been provided to each family. Such source segregation program is expanding to all other households as well in near future.
We promote the recycling of waste paper at Banasthali area with installation of a small plant and at Hadigoun Kathmandu with a larger machine. Financial support was provided by the Japanese Embassy in Nepal. Many kinds of products out of the waste paper have been produced and marketed in appropriate ways such as envelopes, tea mats, visiting cards, files, file holders etc. are made from the recycled paper.
NEPCEMAC promotes greenery in working communities in order to contribute to the aesthetic value of Kathmandu valley through plantation and forestation p
rogram. Examples: Ring road belt of Kusunti Ekantakuna area, Banasthali Balaju area, Maharajgunj Chapal Karkhana area, Bagmati river bank of Sanepa Aphaldol area, Bishnumati River bank of Chamati area and Dhobikhola river bank of Hadigoun area.
