Mandavelipakkam’s residents turned up in good number to do a good turn this Sunday, July 17. The Mandavelipakkam CleanUp No.2 campaign rolled out again – picking up from the community’s earlier cleanup initiative.
Residents cleaned up the entire stretch of Norton 3rd Trust Cross Street, Mandavelipakkam and collected 4 large bags of plastic waste. The recyclable waste dealers took away what they could.
Now, the community’s focus will be on roping in residents to sign up for the 2-Bin 1 Bag concept.
The community team of volunteers will undertake a larger campaign across the neighbourhood to make this initiative a success. Activists have admitted that local residents tend to dump waste in one go and rarely listen to the campaigners.
But this local band of volunteers is not giving up.
