    Nagpur:
    In a major push aimed at clean and beautiful Nagpur, collection of segregated dry and wet garbage would commence from June 5 which is celebrated as World Environment Day. Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) will distribute green and blue garbage bins to citizens for the purpose.

    This was decided at the general body meeting of NMC held at Mahal-based Town Hall on Monday.

    The House also approved a proposal to appeal to companies, MPs, MLAs, to contribute from their development funds for purchase of 11 lakh bins that is to be distributed free of cost among 5.5. lakh units in city. Separately, Ruling Party Leader Sandeep Joshi also tabled a proposal saying every Corporator should also contribute a part of their development funds to enable purchase of bins. The solace for Corporators would be that the bins would carry their names and Joshi said there could be cap of Rs. 2 lakh for contribution from Corporators. The total cost of getting 11 lakh bins comes to Rs. 14 crores and NMC would also appeal people who can afford to purchase at least one bin to avoid burdening the exchequer.
