Inauguration of “Odor – Free Camp in Chennai”

It was the important program which was fully made for the purpose of social cause. Waste that is not properly managed can create serious health or social problems in a community. People can get seriously sick from badly managed waste problems. If they have to leave the community to spend time in hospital, the patient and their families can be badly affected by the separation. If waste is managed well, the cost of fixing problems does not become a burden. Effective Microorganisms will help to reduce the stench emanating from garbage as well as speed up the process of decomposition.


According to that we joined with The Consortium for Sanitation Redress (CSR) and many NGOs have suggested the use of Effective Microorganisms (EM) to manage garbage in the city. And also we are suggesting that the EM be sprayed at all the eight transfer stations where over 4,000 tonnes of fresh garbage is brought in by small-sized compactors and collected to be transferred to the dumping yards at Perungudi and Kodungaiyur using large compactors. This Article came in “The Hindu” Newspaper.


And the CSR conducted the special camp in the name of “Odor free Chennai” on 28th January 2013 in Valluvar Kottam garbage transfer station. Social welfare Minister Mrs. P. Valarmathi and Mayor Mr.S.Duraisamy are came as special guest and inaugurating the camp. The representatives of C.S.R demonstrated the EM.
