In Doda District, after the launch of Clean India Program Doda Municipal Council by District Administration, cleanliness drives have been carried out at District level by various Government departments, Non Govt. Organization (NGOs), SHGs, NSS, etc.
The activities included cleanliness drives by Sanitation workers organizing cleanliness drive cleaning of main Bazaar, plastic waste collection on regular basis apart from daily door to door collection drive by the Municipal Council Doda.
A clean city is a happy home. Door to door garbage collection raised the awareness and motivated people to keep the neighborhood clean. Waste segregation at source refers to the process of identifying and segregating various types of solid wastes at the place or location of their generation. The primary challenges with Source Segregation are a lack of public awareness on sorting, as well as a lack of collection infrastructure to support segregated waste pickup. Effective Source Segregation requires community action, appropriate infrastructure to handle segregated waste and trained collectors.
