17th March 2018. Kirtipur. Kirtipur Municipality in collaboration with Newa FM, New Lahana and Tourist Information center organized a cleaning campaign at Kirtipur.

According to the organizers, 25 metric ton of waste was collected within two hours of campaign.

Mayor of Kirtipur Ramesh Maharjan took the lead and he was followed by more than 2000 participants from different organizations including Nepal police, women's group and students.

Participatnts gathered at Kirtipur gate and cleaned several places and roads around the Kirtipur ring road.

Locals appreciated this effort as  this kind of program increase awareness among people. However such one day event cannot solve the huge problem of waste management at municipality (there were other campaigns earlier too). There should be regular collection of garbage, proper recycling facilities and regular staff for cleaning road, drainage.
