Hazardous & Biomedical Waste Management & Municipal Solid Waste Management:
Waste management initiatives at CEE started in 1989 when it, along with other organisations, participated in a forum called the Committee for Clean Bangalore. Over the last few years, proper management of biomedical waste has emerged as a major focus of CEE's activities. Initiatives include, on the one hand, awareness raising, orientation and training programmes, and, on the other, establishment of a common facility for biomedical waste treatment and disposal.
The major purpose to undertake HWM BMWM Project is to initiate Training programmes on Hazardous & Biomedical Waste Management & Municipal Solid Waste Management.
