In 2009, Radio Active CR 90.4 MHz embarked on a five-year project titled Integrated and Participatory Urban Waste Management Initiatives to sensitize and develop a holistic community approach to waste management. The project seeks to promote ownership of the process of waste management and inclusion of informal waste workers into the solid waste management system.
The project stemmed out of cleanup drives conducted at Frazer Town & JC Road, Bangalore, in 2009. From then on the project has evolved to include Capacity Building Workshops on Waste Management to stakeholders—RWAs, gated communities, educational institutions, business, government, other institutions etc, in addition to engagement with the government and other agencies through policy advocacy.
