GVMC’s prestigious project of door-to-door garbage collection would be formally launched in Malkapuram in Zone IV on Wednesday, Commissioner M.V. Satyanarayana said on Tuesday. The programme would cover 19 wards in the zone.

An awareness campaign would be conducted till July 23 to make the people completely understand the programme which would be taken up in full scale from July 24.

As many as 285 routes for pushcarts, to collect the garbage from houses, were identified and 855 sanitary workers were being engaged.

Each pushcart would have eight dustbins and some tubs and people have to drop their household wet and dry garbage separately in the bins meant for them.

The staff were given whistles (to be blown to indicate their arrival at the doorstep), caps and gloves. Collector V. Sheshadri would launch the project at Maridimamba Kalyana Mandapam in Malkapuram in the presence of Commissioner of Police B. Shivadhar Reddy and VUDA Vice-Chairman N.Yuvaraj.
