Sahansheela Sharma started this petition to Rabi Pradhan (Chairman of Kalimpong municipality) and

"Beautiful place, but, to be honest, very dirty". That's what I was told about my hometown Kalimpong by a man I met on the streets of Varkala in Kerala while I was on vacation. What he said ruined my vacation but when I returned home, I realised that he was absolutely right.

Kalimpong is a small town in West Bengal. If we plan properly, waste management will not be a huge problem. But right now, you can see in Kalimpong town is garbage. The picture was taken by me yesterday morning in 10th mile Kalimpong. Is this the Kalimpong you want? Is this the Kalimpong you had thought you would live in or visit? This is not the Kalimpong I want. But I am only one person. I need your support to make sure my voice reaches the Chairperson of the Kalimpong Municipality. 

I am asking the Kalimpong Municipality to:

1. Set up a waste management system for Kalimpong: For how long are we going to collect the waste from town and then send it to other places for dumping or recycling. Its high time that we need own waste management system for our town.

2. Ban the use of plastic bags;

3. Daily collection of garbage for every household: There is a huge "nalla" in the back side of my house and there is where people dump their waste. If you see the amount of waste in that "nalla" and the flow of that "nalla" in the rainy season you will just be shocked. There is also a huge question of safety here what if the "nalla" changes its course because of huge waste and water and enters the houses of people. Who is to be responsible for this?

4. Carry out awareness drives on the harmful effects of plastics.

Lets save this beautiful town  from garbage and let Kalimpong breathe like before. If we don't stop it now, the damage will be too much to roll back. 

Please support me by signing and sharing this petition.

Let us make Kalimpong free from garbage.
