The Clean and Green Visakha programme will begin from April 15.

Addressing a meeting on the arrangements and plan of action on Friday, Municipal Commissioner M.V. Satyanarayana said an extensive awareness campaign will be conducted from April 1 to 15. Among the plans for making effective use of 600 tons of wet waste a day was setting up a big biogas plant. Tenders will be called to dispose of separated wet and dry wastes. He said the response from citizens was good and GVMC officials and staff were also coming forward to make it a success.

A study tour would be organised to Mysore and Goa where SWM achieved good results, he said.

Tenders have already been called for clearing the massive dump at Kapuluppada, Mr. Satyanarayana said.

Joint Director of Municipal Administration and Urban Development S.A. Khadar Saheb, who successfully spearheaded a campaign at Suryapet, gave a detailed presentation on the schedule to be followed.
