Hyderabad, January 25
The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is taking all measures to transform Hyderabad city as clean city. As part of Swachh Bharat, GHMC organized several programmes.
As part of its efforts, it distributed two dustbins for dry and wet garbage, free to each house for waste collection and all the homes are covered with door-to-door collection of waste. Besides, 2,000 Swachh autos have been distributed for garbage collection.
The officials have removed 116 vulnerable garbage points (VGPs) on roadsides and streets. They arranged special bins at some areas, made rangoli designs to avoid throwing garbage, planted saplings.
Due to this waste collection in the city has gone up by 1,000 tonnes per day.
To make the city open defecation free, individual toilets have been constructed in 3,300 households. Also the civic officials repaired 250 public toilets and arranged 100 pre-fabricated toilets at public places. GHMC is planning to set up e-toilets at tourist places. It banned unofficial flexis, hoardings, cutouts in the city.
