In its efforts to rein in litterbugs dumping garbage in Buddha Nullah and Sidhwan Canal, the municipal corporation (MC) has decided to upload the violators’ videos or pictures on its Facebook page.
The decision was taken during a meeting conducted by MC joint commissioner Swati Tiwana with MC’s health branch officials on Tuesday for apprising the officials of the different parameters of Swachh Survekshan 2021.
Nodal officer, health branch, Ashwani Sahota said, “MC has conducted awareness drives to stop the residents from dumping waste into these water bodies. Challans have also been issued in the past. Now, MC has decided to upload the videos and pictures of violators to deter the practice.”
Sahota said awareness drives were also being conducted to encourage residents to hand over segregated wet and dry waste to the waste collectors. As the local bodies department has notified the Solid Waste Management Bylaws 2020, MC will also commence challan drives soon. Notably, MC has been taking the heat from NGT over its failure to handle solid waste management properly.
