Door-to-door garbage collection finally starts in Jaipur

The recent Swachh Bharat survey - Swachh Survekshan 2017 434 cities and towns of India on the basis of sanitation. Jaipur performed quite poorly and not even made to the top 200 cleanest cities of India. The Jaipur city ranked 215th in the list, which has really disappointed the authorities as well as the common people living in the pink city.

In order to improve this situation and make Jaipur a better city on the cleanliness scale, the Jaipur Municipal Corporation JMC has started its door-to-door garbage collection service from Monday. Let's get more details on this.

The service launches this Monday

The door-to-door garbage collection service in Jaipur launches in 8 wards of the city. these 8 wards include ward number 20, 21, 30 (Sanganer zone), 40 (Mansarovar zone), 41, 42, 43 (Civil Line zone), and 58 (Hawa Mahal East zone). The new fleet of colourful trucks will collect waste from houses and shops of these areas. The garbage will be collected regularly from households from 7 am to 12 pm and from markets from 12 pm to 5 pm.

Colourful trucks to collect waste in the city

Out of the 64 vehicles arranged for this service, 15 trucks have been brightly painted by the Cartist group, which is known for its 'Art on Wheels'. The group was also in talks for its recently organised Cartist Automobile Art Festival. The group's founder Himanshu Jangid believes that these colourful garbage trucks will help in changing people's attitude towards waste disposal and waste management in Jaipur.  Garbage trucks don't usually look attractive so this change might help in waste reduction from the city streets.

Free service

Yes, you read that right. Jaipur Mayoy Ashok Lahoti announced that they won't be charging anything for this Jaipur Municipal Corporation solid waste management service for a few months. No charges will be collected for this door-to-door garbage collection service  for the initial few months.
