ESDO has initiated the Zero waste village project since some years and from 2011ESDO started its work formally on managing solid wastes to make those wastes as a resource and build a “Zero waste Village”. ESDO has chosen a village named Mohalan in Rajshahi District to make it a model village for all based upon a vision of- “to build a model of organic and environmentally safe and sustainable village that will be called Zero Waste Village”. More than 50% of the households of Mohalan already implemented this waste management process in their house. Hopefully, by June 2014, ESDO will declare Mohalan as a zero waste village and will endorse it for other villages.
