Nepal: Chiwang Monastery Waste Management

CIMG1561Year: 2011

Achievements: The construction of 1 waste incinerator.

Impact: Alleviates the dumping of non disposable waste (clothing, plastic etc) in the rivers and over mountainsides. There is no council pick up truck in these remote regions of Nepal, in fact there are no roads – just walking tracks. It also educates the community about the fragility of their natural environment and how proper waste disposal can conserve the environment.
