The cleanliness drive had been jointly undertaken by the locals and the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC).

The entire lot of waste collected during the clening drive of Navi Mumbai mangroves included plastic bags, worn-out masks, gloves, medicine packages, old footwear, bulbs, tube lights, bottles among other things.

The drive was undertaken by the Environment Life group, an environment group that has been actively pursuing a campaign to carry out cleanliness drives around such places, and increase public awareness and participation through many such campaigns.

The organization is satisfied with the successful 12-week drive, and will now take a break before they resume their work again.
