Progressing towards a cleaner Karaikal
An evident improvement is perceptible in the municipality of Karaikal in a period of over four months -since the time MSWM project was launched on 14th of November, 2016, to the present.
Not only are the streets spotless, but the people are well informed of the proper disposal of waste and are keen on observing the same.
While there were scores of measures to bring about this stupendous reform, the strategy to remove the dustbins in the residential areas to promote the door-to-door collection of waste played a crucial role. Although, initially, the initiative was implemented to espouse door-to-door collection, there was also a substantial decrease in the amount of garbage littered on the streets. Indeed, the dustbin removal campaign was commenced to coerce the uncooperative twenty percent of the local population who usually discarded their trash in the dustbin or on the roadsides, to take up this innovative routine.
