I am planning to open a Solid Waste Management facility. Thank you for this opportunity to be a part of this course on Solid Waste Management which has helped me to gain knowledge on the same.
The course on Solid Waste Management was very informative as I am running an NGO. Gaining in-depth knowledge about the concepts of SWM becomes very essential. I was able to learn how to manage the waste effectively.
