As many as 11 students, studying in various schools across the city, have won bicycles for establishing rainwater harvesting and home compost yards in their homes.
Tiruchi Corporation Commissioner N. Ravichandran handed over bicycles to the students. He said that it was aimed at motivating the residents of Tiruchi to set up home compost yard. The prize winners had played a key role in establishing home compost yard in their homes with the involvement of their parents.
Upon receiving the post on the dedicated whatsapp number of the Tiruchi Corporation, a team of officials visited the concerned houses to verify their claim. The prize winners were selected after verifying the efficiency of rainwater harvesting system and home compost yard. Mr. Ravichandran said students could “whatsapp” the pictures of home compost yards at 8300113000. The competitions would continue for a few more months. Winners would be selected on every Thursday.
Entries for the competition should be sent on or before every Wednesday.
