Chairman of the society and rainwater harvesting expert, Col (retd) SG Dalvi told DNA, “Lunkad Greenland II is a ‘green’ society. We have been recycling wet waste in vermiculture pits. Apart from having an efficient rainwater harvesting system, we are also saving up to 30% on our energy bills by switching to CFLs in all common areas. After implementing this initiative, our society will not give any garbage to PMC at all.”
