The clean drive kicked off from the University Building, at 5 pm where the students divided themselves into groups scourging the campus for waste. Going to different areas of the annexure campus, the groups covered the entire area leaving no stone unturned in this drive. The groups collected various garbage items like coffee cups, wafer packets, cardboard, glass bottles and other non-disposable items. Even dry leaves and twigs on the sidewalk weren’t spared. The effect of the clean up by the students made the onlookers and people passing by conscious, making them feel guilty and made them place their waste in the dustbins provided.
