Sterling Brookside- a Success story of Waste Management (180 Apartments)


Published on

This Slideshare is a case study about Sterling Brookside, a 180 Apartment Complex which successfully implemented Solid Waste Management in their Apartment Complex.

This Apartment Complex started off with supplying 3 paper bags for each household with one for Plastic, Paper and other wastes each. They first educated their children on Solid Waste management and did a door to door campaign explaining the residents about the advantages associated with the waste management.

The slideshare also explains their leaf litter management which underwent different styles of composting and was used as manure for their terrace garden.
