Bhutanese has a very Poor Waste Management System in Place.

Waste Management Team
It is a century of rapid change in society, in science and technology and in everyday life. It is the age of super-fast computer system to genetic engineering. 

But, what about the waste we produce each day. 

The world's population has reached to over seven billion. That means we are producing seven billion different waste every day. 

The question is where is it going.

Although, we have Clean Bhutan project, municipal community and Green Bhutan project working onto monitor, sensitize and fix this growing concern. However, we have never experienced clean environment.  

Over the year, global concern such as threat to human life and nature is overburdened with the kinds of waste we produce every day at our home or at workplace. It is the main problem we have everywhere.  

The research have proven that waste has become a new threat to personal health and new disease in the market globally. What do we expect more than this?

Every day we have started our work very early morning in ball freezing temperature till late evening trying all the possible ways to keep surrounding clean for our devotees. However, we couldn't do as expected. Since, our people have honestly lacked far behind in civic sense.

For the period of 'Zhemgang Melamchenmo' I took charge of waste management is basically to help people around fight with waste problem and the other intention is to abreast people on the impact of waste.  

To move effectively, we have used different modes of communication and personality to inform our general public, business community and highly educated minds about the waste. But, it wasn't easy. Amongst all we have faced difficulty in conveying good messages to our business community around. They were tough people to deal with our level of communication. 

We have seen every eyes on the row eagerly looking and waiting for us to come and collect their waste and clean their environment. As if we have polluted and they have paid us. 

Waste Management team busy in their work. 
If you have visited the place and found the vicinity clean and tidy, it is this group who have sacrificed everything just to keep your surrounding clean. "Thank them and salute them for their countless services". 

My appeal to the Government would be, if such religious discourse is for the good cause and for the well-being of the community there shouldn't be any kinds of business near by -be it religious items or any. I could see that our "Religious Ceremonies and Tshechus" over the year has became more like business opportunity.
