This coming Monday, residents of eight wards in Jaipur city will segregate their garbage into dry and wet. As this is a pilot project for Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC), they have decided to implement the process in one ward in each of the eight zones of the city.
This drive fetches high scores in Swachhta Survekshan in which the capital has been lagging behind from many years now. Firstly, the plan is to collect garbage from one ward of all eight zones after which the plan will spread across the city.
Kavita Chaudhary, Deputy Commissioner (Health), who is personally monitoring the drive, said, “Swachhta Survekshan will start soon and segregation is must to fetch good marks. The vehicles collecting garbage already have dividers which will be used from Monday. Right now, we are spreading awareness among people for segregating their wastes as per the guidelines and keep two dustbins for dry and wet garbage.”
Indore that been the table topper in the Swachhta Survekshan Project for many years now. They have a successful model of segregating waste. Indore city administration has also successfully cleaned the landfill sites in the city.
The step was taken by JMC authorities though appreciated by many, the concerned ward councilors where the process is going to be implemented claimed ignorance of the fact.
One of the councilors said, “I have no information about this issue but I would suggest the JMC administration to first implement the garbage collection system properly. Garbage collection vehicles are coming once in my ward in three to four days. Roads are not properly cleaned and many complaints to the JMC are not giving fruitful results.”
