Drainage cleanliness drive from April 1

Dehradun, March 26
Mayor Vinod Chamoli reviewed the performance of the Doon Valley Waste Management (DVWM) company at a meeting held at the premises of the Dehradun Municipal Corporation today.
The company has been given the project worth Rs 24 crore to collect the waste material from the city under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission.
At present, the company, which was hired more than a year ago, is covering 28 wards out of a total of 60 wards.
The meeting was attended by Additional Mukhya Nagar Adhikari Harak Singh Rawat, Chief Health Officer Dr Kailash Joshi, supervisors and representatives of the DVWM.
The Mayor said the workers of the company were not collecting waste material from all slum colonies. The cases of overcharging from slum dwellers were also brought up. It was also seen that the company vehicles were not reaching on time to the housing colonies. He said the work for further wards would not be allocated to them unless they showed improvement in their work. The supervisors of the DMC had been authorised to check their work on regular basis.
The dustbins, which had been placed on main roads, will now be shifted to other lanes. The DVWM, which was supposed to dump the garbage at the Shishambara Scientific Land Fill (SLF), is under construction. Now it has been given the instructions to carry the garbage at Transfer station built at the Haridwar road, where the garbage from small trolleys would be shifted in bigger vehicles and taken to SLF Shishambara.
The Mayor also announced to kick start the drainage cleanliness drive from April 1.
