Since I was from a software industry, managing of waste generated at the office is very important. Through this training, I was able to learn how to manage the waste effectively. Learning about different technologies for treating the waste was very useful. Visit to TSDF site was good practical exposure. Thank you for the program. It was organized in a very good way.
