Source: Assam Tribune, Date: , 2015

Care Assam has launched an endeavour, Affordable Waste Management Initiative (AWMI) as an attempt to find solutions to waste management in Guwahati.

The model is designed to offer the citizens a zero-waste place to live in, thereby enhancing the quality of the surroundings.
