Dehradun, September 23
The Waste Warriors, a passionate group of young people, organised a poster scrapping activity on Survey of India building walls at Survey Chowk here today.

A group of 20 Waste Warriors gathered to scrap a large number of illegal posters being put up on the boundary walls of the Survey of India building. The activity was part of the “Let's Clean Doon Together” campaign.
The group had earlier scrapped posters from the same area but within just a few weeks, the walls were again covered with posters, particularly of the candidates contesting the college elections. This time the things were done differently.
The team approached different government bodies, which had the authority to ensure the maintenance of cleanliness. The whole idea behind the campaign was to preserve the prominent buildings of Dehradun and to take an initiative to stop the defacement of the public property. Vijay Raghav Pant, Director General of Police, Uttarakhand, also showed keen interesting the campaign.
A stall “What waste can create” was also set up where different craft items like cardboard dustbins, flowers made from egg trays and pen stands were on display to inspire the general public.
The Waste Warriors team will continue to clean walls next Sunday near Survey Chowk and it hoped that the Survey of India authorities would also participate. The team has also proposed to make a wall mural on an environmental theme on a boundary wall.
On the eve of Gandhi Jyanti, the team has also proposed a clean-up drive to promote public involvement. A lot of fun and interesting elements will be added to the drive as well. The drive will start from Gandhi Park and cover the area from the Clock Tower to Ashley Hall. The team is involved in taking various initiatives to make Dehradun clean as the city has a big garbage problem.
