On the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, HMC has started bin distribution in 11 wards in order to start source segregation at household level (dry and wet waste).
Soon, e-rickshaws driven door to door collection of waste will begin. This will slowly make the fixed vats redundant.
To attract children towards this initiative, two characters – Neelu (blue bin – dry waste) and Pochu (green bin – wet waste) have been designed. The e-rickshaws will also play jingles to attract children towards waste segregation at source.
Slowly this initiative will be rolled out in all wards of HMC.
