Project to make four wards garbage-free set for debut

The BMC has chalked out a plan to make four wards in the suburbs garbage free in its long-term quest for acleaner Mumbai.

It includes eliminating public garbage collection points, and getting the contractor to start a toll-free number where complaints about accumulation of garbage can be made and the grievance addressed immediately. The plan hinges on appointing a single garbage contractor for a ward to put a stop to passing the buck among them in case of deficient services.
