The Ludhiana municipal corporation (MC) has decided to install cameras in Buddha Nullah and Sidhwan Canal to rein in litterbugs dumping the garbage. They will upload the violators’ videos or pictures on their Facebook page.

The decision was taken during a meeting conducted by MC joint commissioner Swati Tiwana with MC’s health branch officials, reports The Hindustan Times.

As SolidWasteIndia had reported earlier this week that awareness drives are also being conducted by the Ludhiana MC to encourage residents to hand over segregated wet and dry waste to the waste collectors. The Solid Waste Management Bylaws 2020 will be implemented soon and the MC will commence challan drives. The MC has been taking the heat from NGT over its failure to handle solid waste management properly.
