Civic body chalks out plan to improve its Swachhata ranking

However, the bigger challenge is ensuring door-to-door waste collection. The city has 450 waste collection vehicles which are expected to visit every household, however, this is not happening. There are frequent complaints of the irregular visits of the garbage collection vehicle. Besides, the issue of door-t-door waste collection, the waste segregation –dry and wet- at source and also at the transfer station is a milestone to be achieved. The BMC officials are confident that they will be able to address these issues and improve its ranking in the next survey.

At present the STP’s in Bhopal belong to BMC, Public health engineering department (PHED) and BHEL. Construction of Ten other STP’s are underway and the one at Mahol Daamkheda is set to start its operations.

The administration also has to ensure cleaning of water bodies and reservoirs as the cleanliness survey team had visited Motia Lake only to find it filthy. Reuse and recycling of collected waste too is to be given equal importance.

BMC commissioner KVS Chowdhary Kolsani said the plan to make Bhopal the cleanest city is prepared and we will focus on STP’s and other projects and will also strengthen the door-to-door waste collection process.
