With growing awareness regarding hygiene and the availability of sanitary napkins and diapers, their use has increased and so has the problem of their scientific disposal. PMC contacted the producers of these goods and requested them to provide for separate easily identifiable bags to discard the used pieces. Having got a negative response from them, PMC encouraged SWaCH to make paper bags for the said purpose and promoted their usage. Also, a system for scientific disposal of the same was put in place.
- 3 locations across the city
- 600 to 900 pieces of sanitary napkins per day are scientifically disposed at each location
- A system for collection, transportation and disposal is especially developed for the same and areas of focus are working women's hostel, red light areas, and girls'hostels and big residential societies.
- Proposed extension of these services to 15 more locations across the city
