Inspiration - Meet the IAS Officer Powering a Recycling Revolution in Hyderabad!

Mahatma Gandhi had once said, “The earth has enough resources for our need, but not for our greed.”
 The manner in which we are overexploiting resources and polluting our planet to meet our needs suggests that it won’t be long before we wipe them out completely, and leave nothing behind for our future generations. 
                            
 It is times like these that must make us adopt measures like recycling plastic and utilising these as resource materials that can effectively reduce our waste burden on the planet.

India roughly generates around 25,940 tonnes of plastic waste a day, as per a 2017 report by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB).

While this study comprises extrapolated data from about 60 major cities across the country, yet another study showcases that almost 90 per cent of this generated plastic invariably ends up in landfills or water bodies instead of recycling, with about half falling under the single-use category.

Currently the Zonal Commissioner (West Zone) of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), Dasari has been dedicatedly invested in numerous recycling initiatives under her jurisdiction for over two years now.
Right from installing upcycled furniture made from unused tyres and old oil drums at over 120 parks in the city to the conception of housing and sanitation projects where paver tiles and roofing sheets are made of recycled plastic, Hyderabad is witnessing a remarkable change, thanks to Dasari’s extra interest in the initiative.


Setting a remarkable example at a personal, professional and public level, GHMC Commissioner Hari Chandana Dasari is showing the right way for the rest of us through her recycling crusades in the city, and we hope, many more such creative initiatives will come along the way.
