The South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) will set up material reuse units such as bartan (tableware) banks and antique book banks in 28 municipal wards under its jurisdiction. Rajiv Jain, engineer superintendent and nodal officer of SDMC’s Swachh Bharat mission, said there are four administrative zones under SDMC and each zone has been ordered to set up these facilities in at least seven wards. “Bartan banks, toy banks, old book banks, neki ki diwar (wall of good deeds) and centers where plastic containers and old tires can be reused for various purposes such as gardening have been used. finalized as part of this project. A bartan or tableware bank is a unit where people can borrow steel utensils for a social gathering. It reduces the amount of single-use plastic dishes used. The onset of the pandemic has reduced the reuse of old books, which will be promoted by common book banks. The zone administration can also set up toy banks, plastic container reuse units and neki ki diwar – a common covered wall where people can leave old clothes and clean blankets, which can be used. by those in need, â€Jain explained.

On Friday, a neki ki diwar was opened in the C5A block of Janakpuri and similar units were installed in Hari Nagar and Subhash Nagar.

Preparation for Swachchta Survekshan 2022 has started and City Commissioner Gyanesh Bharti held a review meeting on Saturday to finalize the action plan for SDMC. The survey is scheduled for January-February 2022.

Reuse of materials can help SDMC earn 50 points in the national cleanliness ranking, an official said.

The civic organization has also decided to initiate online training programs for its sanitation staff. “The new survey methodology also indicates that all health workers will need to take training courses on sorting waste, collecting waste from quarantined homes and managing Covid-19 waste. We will train sanitary inspectors first, then sanitation workers in the second phase, â€said a senior SDMC official.

The lack of proper segregation of waste (dry and wet waste) at the household level has been a major obstacle to achieving better rankings for Delhi civic bodies. “As an initial target, all deputy commissioners were asked to start processing at least 60 TPD (tonnes per day) of separate wet waste in each area,†the official said. The civic body also plans to publish the rankings for the sanitation of schools, markets, settlements and hotels during the month of November.

The Swachh Survekshan is an annual national survey to assess the cleanliness and sanitation conditions in cities and towns in India. It was launched in 2016 as part of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. With the exception of the 2018 survey, when the southern company performed relatively well, all three Delhi municipal companies have consistently performed poorly in these rankings. At Swachh Survekshan 2020, EDMC was ranked 46th out of 47 local organizations in its category, SDMC ranked 31st and DMC North was ranked 43rd.
