GUYS, PLEASE POST NEWS AND ARTICLES BASED ON WASTE MANAGEMENT AND CLEANLINESS AROUND COIMBATORE
Bangalore is great at cleanliness but I have yo say, Chennai is going from bad to worse.....i visited Chennai recently and waste management is extremely poor....but the blame is not fully on the corp. But the people openly dump garbage, throw wrappers,etc.....cbe has managed to maintain their roads clean if not dusty....dust is an issue on trichy road, mettupalayam road and thadagam road.....but the shunya project has done wonders to rs puram and saibaba colonyIf Highways/ cbe corp officials lay end to end road with pedestrian paths along along important roads, the city will look damn clean.
Right now, there is a huge gap between the foot paths and the road which is accumulated by sand. Besides, even in roads like avinashi road which is proper - sand dunes are formed along the sides and covers 1 lane in most places ; only because of Highways/corp is not cleaning or sweeping the roads regularly.
They should take Bangalore as example, Even chennai is better in this
2) Next thing I noted is having garbage collection point along the major roads, they can place the garbage bins along the streets near by rather than the main road. esp along pankaja mill road, near kidney centre, they have garbage bin on the middle of the road -Gross
this 'shunya' project is great way to step forward un swattch bharath....hipw other cities too follow cbeCreating Awareness is a first step in Clean India,which should begin from School. Should be a subject of Social Studies too. Unless until People want their surroundings clean (H1N1 free), it is not achievable.
China which stands next to India in terms of Population, they do far better than India in keeping their (at least Major-) cities clean. We focus E=MC^2 in schools too much, forgetting the basics of livings( Social responsibilities, Public Manners, Use Polite Language etc). Indian Education System(at least for elementary schools) has to be re-looked to compete with developed countries.
Go India! Clean India! All the best~
