For that we introduced waste separate collection bag producing by out handy bags. There have two types of bags named Organic waste bag and non – Organic waste bag. These are Rice bags and can be reuse to collect waste again. It has a cover inside of the bag.
First we held the awareness program to the people of China Garden ward. We discussed how to collect the bags and to get their views. Then we found the women who living at China Garden for sewing the bags as a self-employed. We paid 50 rupees per bag to her. So we think this is a win-win situation of the project.
As the main activity of the project we have distributed the separate waste collection bag to community of china garden in Galle. It is very useful thing for build the new waste collection system.
