PCMC To Collaborate With NGO For Garbage Collection
PUNE: The Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) hopes to start garbage collection through volunteers of Swach, an NGO using hopper rickshaws and Ace vehicles.
The volunteers will be taught to drive under the PCMC’s backward classes welfare schemes by the All India Local Self Government Organisation at the rate of Rs 3,000 per person.
The expenditure incurred on training male volunteers will be borne through the PCMC’s urban poverty alleviation scheme, while the expenditure incurred on training female volunteers will be borne through the PCMC’s backward classes women welfare scheme.
Meanwhile, a proposal will be tabled before the standing committee to seek its approval for incurring an expenditure of Rs 3 lakh for training 100 volunteers of Swach for the house-to-house garbage collection.
