1.      Door to door waste collection 

WSSCM has taken initiatives to provide service delivery at door step. In this regard door to door waste collection has been carried out inall 14 UCs, 

where, Suzuki dumpers at a specific time collect waste from houses. Local residents are informed about timing. With the implementation of this 

model not only public gets service delivery at door step but the issues of formation of garbage dumps in the streets are also addressed. Currently 68%

households are benefited from this system. WSSCM is taking measures to extend door to door waste collection services in other areas as well.
