Bid to boost waste segregation in Silchar

By Staff Correspondent

SILCHAR, July 18 - �At present, even as we are segregating the waste at our own level, it is getting mixed up while being transported to the dump yard. We needed a process which allows us to keep the organic and inorganic wastes segregated, collected and deposited and we are happy to see the Government responding to our wishes,� feels 76-year-old Chandra Bahadur Singh Chetri, an ex-Army man.

Chetri, who had served the country rendering duties in Sikkim, Mizoram and other places, now stays at his residence at ward number 24 here. He was happy to receive the buckets from Cachar Deputy Commissioner Laya Madduri and Chairman of Silchar Municipal Board NN Tagore on Thursday morning.

�As a part of the Swacch Sundor Silchar mission, buckets will be distributed to every household in some wards chosen for the pilot drive. Once the pilot test of Solid Liquid Resource Management yields expected results, we shall distribute buckets to residents across all the wards within the municipal area,� said Laya Madduri.

Expressing happiness at the start of the proceedings, Madduri hoped that people will cooperate with the authorities to turn garbage into gold and keep the town clean.

C Srinivasan, who is steering the SLRM mode of converting the wastes into resources was seen with his team explaining how to keep the organic and inorganic wastes into the green and red buckets respectively. He also told the people that volunteers would come to collect the buckets twice a day and take them to the SLRM centre. Municipal commissioners Rajesh Das and Madhumita Sharma were also seen convincing the residents about the positive use of the buckets.

Over 300 such buckets were given to people of the vicinity across Tarapur area including nine families within the premises of the Chetri�s house.

Sharing his thoughts, NN Tagore hoped that the tax paying esteemed citizens comply with the request of not duping wastes on roadside or on the drains.
