This Earth Day, let's recount THESE 7 steps undertaken by Indore to become India's cleanest city
Celebrated first on 22nd of April, 1970, 'Earth Day' is a reminder for every single person that the planet's well-being is our constant responsibility and to take a step towards that, we need to start at the grassroots first. This day is the perfect occasion when we can talk about Indore, the cleanest city in India, with a little more pride than usual!
Indore has left no stone unturned to win awards for being the country's cleanest city for four consecutive years now, so we have listed down 7 steps taken by the city, in becoming so.
After years of these initiatives running successfully, Indore continues to ensure that 100% of household wastes in the city are segregated at the source and there is also a sustainable integrated waste management system in place. Additionally, in a bid to solidify Indore's status as the cleanest Indian city, the civic authorities have announced that an FIR will be filed immediately against miscreants caught polluting the environment or dirtying the roads and walls.
Along with all this, there is an app developed for the door-to-door collection and transportation of waste to the final disposal point, where there are dry and wet waste processing plants for further waste treatment. Even several social media initiatives have been undertaken to ensure the engagement of citizen's in the entire process, which consequently leads to better functioning of these systems!
