The AP government
plans to follow the footsteps of Singapore for waste management in the entire
state as well as in the capital region. After his recent visit to Singapore,
chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu has chalked out a strategy to keep the state
garbage-free. According to which, people will be asked to segregate garbage at
source for easy management of waste by the sanitary staff. If the Naidu
government has its way, citizens will be asked to use two waste baskets at
homes and offices for the separate collection of dry and wet waste materials.
According to officials, kitchens in Singapore have special ducts which
automatically segregate waste material, which in turn are connected to a common
dump from where municipal vehicles collect segregated garbage.
