Workshop on Swachh Bharat Abhiyan held

National level capacity-build­ing workshop on Swachh Bharat Abhiyan was held here in the city on Thursday.

To understand the clean­liness initiatives in Mysuru, a workshop on topic ‘Segre­gation of waste at all levels’ was organised by Mysuru City Corporation (MCC). The workshop was inaugurated by Deputy Commissioner C Shikha. She said, “This cen­turies-old city has a long his­tory and it was not an easy task to maintain this histor­ical place over a period of time. Though Mysuru is well planned with sanitation and sewage management, main­taining it is always a tough task. The role played by the city corporation, pourakarmi­kas, elected representatives and the role of public must be remembered.”

“Many civic association and societies, pourakarmikas have worked hard to tackle various environmental and social issues,” she added.

Participants from over 24 cities from across the coun­try participated in the capaci­ty building programme where participants were taken for field visit to ward no 34 Ya­davagiri to give them expo­sure on how door-to-door waste collection is in pro­cess. Later, they were taken to Zero waste management Unit, compost plant for better understanding on processing and disposal of waste. Tech­nical sessions on integrated solid waste management in Mysuru, segregation of waste at all level and other topics were also held.

MCC Commissioner Dr C G Betsurmath, Member of expert committee on SWM N S Ramakanth, Health officer MCC Dr Nagaraj and others were present.
