SDMC carrying out door-to-door campaign for segregation of waste
The Morning Standard|January 21, 2022
IN a first, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) has launched a door-to-door campaign in slum clusters and JJ colonies to create awareness and engage people in the segregation of household waste at the source.

The initiative has come up right before the municipal polls are scheduled in April this year. While the civic body had started a door-to-door collection of waste from its three model wards in 2019, this is the first time when it has reached out to the slum clusters to make them participate in the exercise. “In this series, a door-to-door drive on the segregation of wet and dry waste at source was carried out in collaboration with ITC WOW at R K Puram ward’s Ekta Camp in south zone.
