Mass cleaning campaign
Published on: 18-Aug-2022

The NECS in collaboration with Desuung Office and other agencies started conducting a mass cleaning campaign on August 10th leading up to the border reopening in September. The Campaign is aimed at managing our ever-increasing waste problems by bringing all the relevant stakeholders on board, while simultaneously, sensitizing the general public on proper waste management practices. The cleaning campaign will be conducted in various locations within Thimphu Thromde and other peripherals in the Thimphu Dzongkhag.  A total of 48.4 tonnes of waste has been collected so far on the third day. The reports on daily collection of waste are updated on the Zero Waste Bhutan FB page.
