Port Blair, July 17: ‘Swatch Bharat Mission’ is one of the flagship programmes initiated by Govt. of India having the major component of Open Defecation Free (ODF) and Solid Waste Management. To implement SBM, PBMC has conducted several awareness programmes, however, desired outcomes are yet to be seen in the field level. To implement SBM, PBMC is conducting an awareness programme on Solid Waste Management in Schools and colleges, to bring behaviour change amongst their parents and neighbours and create a Healthy Sanitation Society. As a Pilot Project, 06 Municipal Wards viz Ward No. 08,12,16,17,21 & 22 has been chosen wherein complete Door to Door Collection, Segregation, Solid Liquid Resource Management Centers and processing will be implemented as per SWM Rules -2016.
The Moto of PBMC is to inculcate Swatchata in each and every Citizen of Port Blair and thereby achieve garbage-free city, PBMC, therefore, appeal to all the Citizens to extend their full co-operation and segregate dry and wet waste separately to the Sanitary Workers and become a part of Swatchata Mission.
