In an effort to make Tirumala a `Zero-waste zone', the Srivari Seva Group led by C.N. Paramasivan, along with the Exnora, will clean up the surroundings at Tirumala.
Participating in a meeting on Monday, Mr. Paramasivan said the group had a manpower base of 4,500 volunteers and the Exnora had the expertise in keeping the surroundings clean. The features of the campaign include cleaning up by volunteers, guiding people to dump garbage in bins, rectifying defects in all the 5,000 bathrooms and saving 1.5 lakh litres of water every day.
M. B. Nirmal, founder, Exnora International, said an estimated 80 tonnes of garbage was generated every day at Tirumala.
K.A. Muthuvel, Manager, Customer Support, Parryware, said that with water being a scarce commodity in Tirumala, it would amount to a huge saving as a resource and in terms of cost reduction in the purchase of water.
Those interested in joining the Srivari Seva Group can call Mr. Paramasivan at 2433 4895.
