Segregated waste

Government has been able to manage the solid waste at the village level.

The campaigns launched for door to door collection of waste is almost happening in every panchayat of Jammu and Kashmir.

The segregated waste at the moment is being managed through recyclers, rag pickers, linkages with ULBs etc. However, PWMUs are being established in each district, some of which are in the final stages of completion. The plastic in these centres would be cleaned, shredded, and bailed for its final disposal.

District Sanitation committees headed by respective Deputy Commissioners have also been constituted at district level to formulate, implement and monitor various aspects of the District and village Swachhta plans. IEC activities, door to door collection and committee meetings are regularly held at district level to discuss, monitor and strategize for achieving cleanliness and sanitation for all villages.

In order to enhance capacity building of officers, village level workers, elected representatives about swachta, 1641 capacity building programs across 285 blocks in 20 districts have been conducted at the panchayat level so far. 401 Trainers have been trained to dispense information and provide orientations at the panchayat level .

SBM(G) is not just a scheme for asset creation but is a behavioural change program which each household of the UT has to embrace for its success.
