The Doh Bin Project in DLF Gurgaon progressing well
The 'Doh Bin Project' in Gurgaon has been quite a big movement owing to its innovative approach to waste disposal. Launched in December of 2013, it educated people in and around DLF City area, Gurgaon to segregate their waste into biodegradable and non biodegradable waste by providing two different coloured bags to them.

Talking about the progress of the project, General Secretary of DLF City Residents Welfare Association Sudhir Kapoor said, "The progress is encouraging but it is a little early on to say that we have achieved 100 percent. It takes a while and we are working on it."

The project, which is a collaborative efforts by Tetra Pak, Coca Cola and DLF City RWA aims at not only educating the residents about the difference in waste but also their maids and waste collectors. They have given the residents two different coloured plastic bins- blue and green and then told them, which waste would go where.

The aim of the project was to get to the household level and tell them the difference about the different kinds of waste and which waste go where and how do they work. Stressing the progress of the project Kapoor said, "It is positive but it is too early to say whether the maids and the waste collectors are grasping the meaning of all this."

If the first barrier is dealt with, then the project would be a pioneer for other similar kinds of projects in different cities.
