The project was inaugurated with a month long cleanup of existing pileups, utilising a fleet of loaders and tippers, and more than two dozen workers
As each street was cleaned up, a HEPCA team entered with awareness material, and a set of simple directions for the proper practices of waste disposal. Every building was required to have sufficient containers for their waste output; HEPCA provided branded 120 litre containers at cost price. In parallel to the awareness campaign, door to door collection commenced twice a day.
The project was met with a great deal of cooperation from the resident population, who have continued to work with the HEPCA team on the ground in the reporting of any violations and maintaining the streets waste free. A change in attitude and daily habits is easily noticeable in the streets of Hadaba.
