Panaji: The Corporation of City of Panaji (CCP) will be introducing innovating scheme for its residents from October 2 onwards of providing the essentials in exchange of the dry waste.

CCP Commisisoner Sanjith Rodrigues said that the innovative scheme would be introduced from October 2, which is birthday of Mahatma Gandhi and also sixth year of ‘Swacch Bharat Mission.’

The civic body which has jurisdiction over the state capital and its sub-urbs will launch the program titled   ‘Shop With Your Waste Campaign (SWYWC)’.

“The campaign is technically supported under the ‘Waste NAMA’ project being implemented by GIZ India – a German Government Development Corporation and TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute) – a national  think tank,” he said.

Rodrigues said that  the Campaign is also supported by 21st Century Polymers Private Limited, as a large scale buyer for recyclables.

“This initiative seeks to motivate the residents of Panaji to recycle dry

waste, through a bartering system, and will be driven with the support

of the shops and commercial establishments based in the City,” he said.

“Under this  campaign, the city residents are expected to bring in recyclable dry waste  such as  milk pouches (cleaned and dried), cardboard (flattened and dry), and, PET bottles (crushed and dry) and in  exchange take away daily essentials like bread, milk, eggs, rice, pulses etc. from the shops who become a part of the campaign,” he said.

“This campaign is open to only  shopkeepers who are based in the City of Panaji,” he said.

The Commissioner said that  this unique model is being launched by CCP to inhibit a sense of value  for waste among its citizens and to provide a way to incentivise it’s  citizens who have been segregating their waste diligently since years.

“The campaign also strives to improve the socio-economic fabric of the city by providing new opportunities to existing entrepreneurs and waste workers,” he added.
