  1. A novel idea indeed. However, we need to first implement proper segregation of waste at all households and Co mercia establishments such as hotels and restaurents, organize systematic collection and transportation. Presently neither citizens are aware nor the employees of the contractor appropriately equipped and trained to carry out systematic collection of garbage. Request the concerned authorities to look into these aspects and then commenced the work on this project.
