SDMC forms “slum support groups” to improve sanitation


SDMC has set up “slum support groups” to improve sanitation in slums as these will help with door-to-door segregated waste collection, officials said on Sunday.

“To improve services and ensure further development work, SDMC has formed slum support groups. With the help of these groups, curbside curbside waste collection was initiated,’ the civic body said in a statement.

“People living in slums are urged to keep their environment clean and are asked to separate dry and wet waste at the household level,” he said.

SDMC is making every effort to improve sanitation services in the slums, according to SDMC officials.

People can also register sanitation-related complaints on the “SDMC 311” mobile app, he added.

SDMC, working with RWAs and brand ambassadors, is also focusing on source separation of waste, composting of wet waste and saying no to single-use plastic, he said.

A massive sanitation campaign is underway in the four areas and people are being made aware of the “Swachh” initiatives, he added.
