In a bid to make the city’s iconic Connaught Place smart and clean, the New Delhi Municipal Council has initiated a scheme for installation of 253 stainless steel ‘smart dustbins’ under the Swacch Bharat Mission.
In the first phase, the dustbins would be installed at public plaza, radial roads and in public corridors.
“Dustbins are the most important aspect of cleanliness in public areas as well as markets due to heavy footfall,” NDMC Chairman Naresh Kumar said in a statement.
“The transparent design of the dustbins has been prepared in consultation with Delhi Police keeping in view all safety and security aspects. The bags would be provided by NDMC to its safai karamcharis for collecting and cleaning the litter from the bins,” he added.
The NDMC has decided to install such dustbins in other commercial areas.
