Chamber hails drive to clean up Madurai

Our Correspondent

MADURAI, Jan. 8

THE Tamil Nadu Chamber of Commerce and Industry has welcomed the initiative of the District Collector and the Commissioner of Madurai Corporation to make Madurai dust and garbage free.

The President of the chamber, Mr S. Rethinavelu, in a statement here, has said that the Corporation has now prohibited all shops and establishments in the city from throwing wastes and garbage into the open.

Shops and establishments including marriage halls, theatres, hotels and restaurants should collect bio-degradable wastes in green colour bags and non bio-degradable wastes in red colour bags, accumulated in their places, and dispose them directly through Corporation garbage vehicles as and when they come.

The commercial establishments in Madurai not adhering to the above direction will be slapped with heavy fine on a daily basis. Residents of the city have also been requested to strictly follow this procedure and avoid dumping wastes and garbage in street corners.

Mr Rethinavelu said only the cooperation of the general public and business community will ensure the successful implementation of the project.
