SDMC and Dwarka Forum joined hands to fight against Dengue, Chikungunya & Garbage disposal

Seeing the worsening situation & outbreak of Vector Borne diseases like Dengue and Chikungunya in Dwarka; Dwarka Forum took a lead and joined hands with SDMC.  Members of forum met DC Sh Sanjeev kumar today at Sec-23 Community Hall, Dwarka and demanded focus on fogging in schools, DDA Pockets and Group Housing societies on priority, segregation to reduce load on landfills, requested for efficient garbage pick-up and emphasized on decentralised composting.

Dwarka Forum members apprised Sh. Sanjeev Kumar regarding all the points and their present status of all the action points which were discussed during previous meetings. 

Dwarka Forum demanded a road map of garbage pick-up trucks so that it can be optimized for maximum output. At the same time, forum asked DC to help with providing dustbins-carts for the societies near dhalao to reduce burden on trucks.

Both Dwarka Forum  and DC agreed that all the dhalaos should work as composting sites and SDMC should only pick segregated garbage from the society as per MCD’s new notification on garbage segregation. However, Dwarka Forum pressed that SDMC should provide support to Dwarka Forum in educating the residents to initiate segregation and composting at source.

Dwarka Forum maintained that daily cleaning and picking up of garbage was not up to the mark and safayee karamcharis were often found absconded from their duty. DC took contingence of the same and promised to work with Dwarka Forum on ground every Saturday by visiting various sectors.

Dwarka Forum has been conducting awareness campaign on segregation and composting techniques in various societies.

On the request of a member, DC also assured installation of limited open Gyms in MCD parks. He asked Dwarka Forum to identify parks.
