Our school aims at creating a ZERO garbage zone. Dustbins of various colours for segregating garbage at source have been placed at various points. Green coloured dustbin is for Paper and Blue coloured dustbin is for Non-Biodegradable waste and the non-biodegradable waste is picked up by the rag pickers and we do not throw anything in the Municipal Corporation.
A paper-recycling unit has been functioning in our school premises for the last ten years. It has a capacity of 10 kgs. The waste paper from the green dustbins is recycled and various stationery items like files, folders, envelopes, writing pads, school letterheads, scribbling pads, bags and certificates are made from the recycled paper.
Art exhibitions of paper products (made out of waste) as held every year. This is in order to sensitize the children that waste paper can be recycled thus saving our trees.
