new Delhi: The North Delhi Municipal Corporation started a ‘Bring wet garbage, take manure’ campaign in Karol Bagh area. Mayor of North Delhi Jai Prakash, Deputy Commissioner of Karol Bagh Himanshu Gupta and other officers of the corporation were present on the occasion. With this campaign, 1 ton of wet waste will be converted into compost every day. There is also a claim to help in the disposal of the garbage problem in Delhi.
Giving information, officials said that out of the total 13 wards of Karol Bagh area, there are 4 model wards, in which the work of segregation has been started and 16 pits have been made for manure. Efforts are being made to segregate waste at the household level itself. The wet waste will go directly to the manure pits and the dry waste to the Bhalswa landfill litter site. This will reduce the pressure of garbage at our landfill site and a lot of waste will be recycled and used.
On this mission, the Mayor of North Delhi, Jai Prakash, says that the North Delhi Municipal Corporation is committed to reducing pollution and there is an initiative towards converting wet waste into manure. He informed that more such fertilizer plants will be set up in the near future.
He told that door to door campaigns are being carried out to separate garbage from house to house. Efforts are also being made in this direction through meetings with RWA and Market Association. Under this campaign, 1 kg of fertilizer will be given in lieu of every 5 kg of biodegradable green waste. The objective of this campaign is to lead the citizens towards better management of garbage.
Delhi government’s decision, public holiday will be on November 20 on the occasion of Chhath Puja
