Tiruchi Mayor expressed this view at a meeting between senior Corporation officials and EXnora chairman N.B. Nirmal

Voluntary organisations such as Exnora should join hands with the Corporation to take up a cleanliness drive over the next three months, Tiruchi Mayor A.Jaya has said.

The Mayor was speaking at a consultative meeting between senior Corporation officials led by V.P.Thandapani, Commissioner, and N.B.Nirmal, founder chairman, Exnora, at the Corporation office on Friday.

Ms.Jaya said Tiruchi city, being located centrally in the Sate, attracted a big floating population apart from tourists. Voluntary organisations should join hands with the Corporation to make the city clean and green over the next three months.

Mr.Thandapani emphasised the role of Exnora, voluntary organisations and residents’ welfare associations in collection of garbage from households and greening initiatives.

Mr.Nirmal said most of the discarded materials can be recycled and prevent needless littering of public places.

He also stressed the need for water conservation and source reduction of mosquito breeding.

Deputy Mayor M.Asick Meera, zonal chairpersons M.Latha, J.Srinivasan, R.Gnanasekar and N.Manoharan, City Engineer Raja Mohamed and other officials attended the meeting.




will surely approach them sir :)

Cleanliness is next to godliness, prove sanitary workers

A marked difference is being witnessed on arrangements for civic amenities during Vaikunta Ekadasi festival in Srirangam this year with a large number of sanitary workers from the civic body and the temple having been pressed into service. Every opportunity has been best utilised for ensuring cleanliness. For example on entering the Ammamandapam Road from Mambazha Salai, a makeshift barricade proclaims Srirangam as a plastic-free zone sensitising devotees to the need for avoiding plastics.

Residents hail the services being rendered by the sanitary workers. “We see a difference this year. The strength of sanitary workers has been increased and the garbage is cleared then and there,” says Parasara Lakshmi Narasimha Bhattar, a resident and Vedic pandit.

Endorsing his view, Sthanikam Narasimhan, another resident, says that the disposal of garbage has been prompt, both outside and inside the temple.

Referring to the extended duration of the ‘annadhanam’ scheme they say that the clearing of plantain leaves and other garbage from the ‘annadhanam’ area is quite timely. They appreciated the restriction of entry for devotees through Renga Renga gopuram or the north gate – introduced for the first time this year.

Apart from ensuring security, it will avoid congestion, thereby paving the way for additional safety and more hygienic environment for the pilgrims. The entire Srirangam area has been divided into a number of segments, each being monitored by a sanitary supervisor and a sanitary inspector. About 15 sanitary workers are being drafted for duty for every shift of eight hours. “The walkie-talkie has come in handy for us to interact among ourselves and to meet any emergency sanitary assistance,” they say.

V.P. Thandapani, Corporation Commissioner, has been visiting the area periodically ensuring prompt clearance of garbage and advising improvements, wherever needed. The focus is on Ammamandapam bathing ghat where a large number of devotees gather for performing family rituals.

Workers from the temple have been coordinating the sanitary programme. “We collect plantain leaves and other waste materials, and deposit them in a big bin kept on Ammamandapm campus. Corporation sanitary workers clear it once a few hours,” say sanitary workers Annapoorani and Silambayi at Ammamandapam.

M. Tiruvenkadam Yadav, coordinator of Tiruvarangam Nagar Nala Sangam, says that the sanitary services in Srirangam are similar to those available in Tirumala. He referred to the manual clearing of sand on several sectors, particularly in Ammamandapam–Rajagopuram sector.

Garbage collection vehicles hit the road

Image

Garbage collection and compacting vehicles and equipment, totally worth about Rs.3.34 crore, which were acquired by Tiruchi Corporation to improve solid waste management in the city, hit the road on Saturday.

The vehicles and equipment were formally handed over to corporation sanitary workers by N.R.Sivapathi, Minister for School Education, Law, Youth Welfare and Sports, in Srirangam on Friday.

The corporation had acquired the five ‘compactor’ vehicles and 250 garbage bins with funds sanctioned by the State government under the Integrated Urban Development Programme (IUDP).

Mr.Sivapathi said that the State government had sanctioned Rs.23 crore under the IUDP to Tiruchi Corporation in the current year for improving civic amenities and infrastructure.

In the previous financial year, Rs.17 crore was sanctioned.

The vehicles and equipment, he said, would help improve efficiency of the solid waste handling and reduce the time taken for clearing garbage.

The Minister flagged off a rally taken out by members of Youth Exnora of Srimad Andavan College of Arts and Science and Jamal Mohamed College, and NSS volunteers to sensitise people against the use of plastics below 40 microns in thickness in Srirangam.

He also inaugurated the special polio immunisation campaign for migrant children taken up in 141 locations in the city.

P.Kumar, MP, R.Manoharan, M.Paranjothi, T.P.Poonatchi, R.Chandrasekaran and Indira Gandhi, MLAs, Jayashree Muralidharan, Collector, A.Jaya, Mayor, and V.P.Thandapani, Corporation Commissioner, were present.

Free saplings

Meanwhile, Collector Jayashree Muralidharan has announced that saplings will be distributed to people handing in plastic products at the 51 collection centres to be set up in Srirangam by the corporation as part of its campaign to discourage the use of non bio-degradable plastics.

The corporation has already announced that coupons will be issued to people handing in plastics at the collection centres on Sunday and Monday in Srirangam and a lucky dip will be held on Monday.

Gold, silver and LED bulbs will be given as prizes to winners of the lucky dip.

Hand in non-biodegradable plastics and take gold, silver coins, LED bulbs home

Cloth bags, coupons in return to those giving bags made of non-biodegradable plastics on Dec. 23 and 24


Campaign held for second consecutive Vaikunta Ekadasi festival

Gold and silver coins and energy-saving LED bulbs are up for grabs for those handing in non-biodegradable plastics to civic authorities during Vaikunda Ekadasi festival in Srirangam this year too.

For the second consecutive Vaikunta Ekadasi festival, Tiruchi Corporation has announced a campaign to discourage use of plastics below 40 microns in thickness in Srirangam. The corporation would also hand out cloth bags and coupons in return to those handing in bags and other products made of non-biodegradable plastics on December 23 and 24. The main event of the festival, opening of the Paramapadavasal, is scheduled for December 24 when the maximum crowd turn-out is expected.

The civic body would open collection centres with the help of Exnora volunteers to receive the plastics at 51 drinking water distribution points in the temple town to be set up in view of the festival. Prizes would be given to people collecting plastic wastes from public places or even from their households, and hand them over to the authorities.

A lucky dip would be held right at 2 p.m. on December 24 at the Srirangam zonal office of the corporation. While the first two winners would be given gold coins, the next four would get silver coins, and the following six would take home LED bulbs, Mayor A.Jaya announced at a meeting to review the arrangements made for the festival in Srirangam on Wednesday.

Ms.Jaya said that the corporation has deployed 200 sanitary workers exclusively for maintaining cleanliness and public hygiene in Srirangam during the festival. Special medical camps would be organised at seven places on December 23 and 24. Temporary toilets have been set up at six places around the temple apart from 47 urinals. Five mobile toilets would also be deployed in the town. Adequate drinking water supply and lighting arrangements have been made.

Earlier, Ms.Jaya along with Corporation Commissioner V.P.Thandapani and other officials inspected the arrangements made by the civic body in Srirangam.



An excellent Initiative Done by Trichy City Corporation in Srirangam
:D :D

Hope, it extends to other areas in the city as well :)
