GUWAHATI, Sept 10: In a bid to maintain sanctity and cleanliness of the Kamakhya Temple, the temple administration is going to start a process to turn waste into wealth through a special garbage disposal system. It has also introduced ‘Swachh Kamakhya Initiative’ in collaboration with Ec- Waste Magement and Care Axom, an NGO. An awareness drive was taken out in this connection on the temple premises. Present in the meeting were Doloi Mohit Chandra Sarma, Kobindra Prasad Sarma, president of Bordeuri Samaj Bhupati Sarma, among others. “An initiative to ban the use of polythene bags inside the temple premise has become the need of the hour if we have to remain firm in our decision to maintain cleanliness,” said Doloi Mohit Chandra. It also exhibited the Rotary Drum Composter, a specially-designed dustbin, and also installed recycling bins at several places.
