We will take a number of steps to make the public more aware about the importance of maintaining cleanliness in the Mela area,” Rai said.The official said that the authority plans on spreading awareness among visitors by organising nukad nataks and putting up posters and banners.
Hence, the garbage doesn’t spill out from the dustbin and the bins would be ready for reuse instantly,” said Rai.Over 20,000 liner dustbins would be put across the Mela ground and six tipper vans would be deployed in each sector to lift the collected garbage.The authority would be using 40 garbage compactors to maintain cleanliness in each of the 20 sectors.
These roads would be cleaned by 11,400 sanitary workers, who would be divided into 950 teams,” said deputy Mela Adhikari and media in charge of Kumbh-2019 Rajeev Rai.“Apart from the road, the teams would be responsible for cleaning the offices of various organisations, the ghats, camps and other public utilities,” he added.In a first, the Mela authority would install liner bag dustbins for garbage collection.“These conical-shaped dustbins are easier handle and transport.
