With a purpose to strengthen the sanitation system in twin towns, Yamunanagar and Jagadhri, the Municipal Corporation has decided to buy 100 garbage tricycle rickshaws.
The MC authorities recently invited tenders to purchase these garbage tricycle rickshaws with a partition for dry and wet waste. According to normal practice,sweepers clean the roads and streets in colonies and accumulate the garbage at different places.
Another team comes later to lift those piles. But before the teams come, stray dogs, cattle and pigs convert the piles into litter again.
“We have decided to provide garbage tricycle rickshaws to sanitation workers in all 22 wards of the twin towns. After cleaning the roads and streets, the garbage will not be piled up alongside the roads or streets; instead the garbage will be dumped into rickshaws immediately after cleaning work,” said Madan Chauhan, Mayor, Municipal Corporation, Yamunanagar-Jagadhri.
He said in the first phase, they had decided to purchase 100 garbage tricycle rickshaws for all 22 wards of the Municipal Corporation.“If needed, more garbage tricycle rickshaws will be purchased in the second phase,” added Madan Chauhan.
He further said they had recently invited tenders to purchase these garbage rickshaws. “We are making all efforts to make twin towns Yamunanagar-Jagadhri and villages falling under jurisdiction of the Municipal Corporation beautiful and garbage free,” said Madan Chauhan.
