The Corporation has plans to introduce litter-free corridors in some zones.
What’s it about? The Corporation wants residents and traders to support solid waste management initiatives. For this, each zone will have a litter-free corridor declared by December 21. A similar proposal in 2013 couldn’t be implemented due to inadequate manpower. There’ll be teams to enforce the rules to keep the roads litter-free.
- The enforcement teams will have conservancy inspectors and supervisors, license inspectors. They’ll be present in all zones and identify hotspots of garbage dumping and levy fines.
- Shops that fail to have two bins for waste segregation and disposal will be monitored. Estimates say there are about 30,000 such shops.
Necessity and plans: Littering near bus stops has increased so the Corporation placed bins near them. More conservancy workers will be posted at the litter-free zones.
