Navi Mumbai: The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) has been emphasizing the segregation of waste at source. The civic body already has made it mandatory to segregate dry, wet and hazardous waste at the source before giving it to sanitation workers.

In addition, it is also stressing on implementation of composting projects within the premises of large societies.

For this, all eight wards are visiting societies and interacting with the citizens, convincing them of the importance of waste segregation, removing plastic, and also encouraging them to participate in waste management like composting within the society premises.
