In an attempt to enhance the appearance of the city by boosting cleanliness, LMC is all set to make a shift in Lucknow's garbage management system. The municipal body will do away with garbage dumping points and set up dedicated pick-up points across the Capital City.

The plan of action includes the installation of refuse compactors across multiple locations like markets and other crowded areas in the city. In addition to this, plastic sheets will also be installed at many other points in the city. Reportedly, the civic body has earmarked locations for setting up garbage compactors. According to officials, the installation work is expected to begin by March 10.

The specialty of this garbage management system is that the waste does not fall on the ground at all, ensuring that the roads remain clean. One of the biggest advantages of the refuse compactor is that it eases waste transportation and collection process. The garbage will be collected and compacted directly from the pickup points and disposed of at the Shivri Sewage Treatment Plant with this compactor.
