The Sanitation Committee of the Municipal Corporation approved the purchase of 42 dustbins that would be kept in the market area of Sector 17. The committee members opined that the dustbins that were already kept in the market area were quite old. A need was felt to replace these in order to make Sector 17 look cleaner.
The meeting was held under the chairmanship of H C Kalyan and attended by other members including Darshan Garg, Maj D S Sandhu (Retd), Pardeep Chhabra, Mukesh Bassi, Rajesh Gupta and officials of the civic body.
Kalyan said that since Sector 17 is a prominent shopping centre and the dustbins in the area were old it was decided to replace these. Some of them are broken and garbage flows out of these. The bins would be kept near shops from where garbage can be lifted by the collectors.
The committee members also approved purchase of 250 wheel barrows for collection and removal of garbage. This has been done to ensure an improvement in the sanitation facilities.
The committee also recommended an agenda item regarding enhancement of salary for sanitary inspectors engaged through service provider from Rs 8,000 per month to Rs 12,000 per month.
The recommendation will be sent to the general house meeting for approval.
