Navi Mumbai: The city of Navi Mumbai was awarded a five-star garbage-free city rating in the Swachh Survey 2020. This is the second consecutive time that our city has done us proud by winning the title. However, Mumbai failed to take home any points at all.
The city managed to succeed even in the tough selection criteria that includes coverage of 100% households through door-to-door collection and proper transportation of solid waste. It also requires that sweepers clean 100% public and commercial areas at least once in the morning and once at night on a daily basis. It also requires the same process for residential areas with the additional provision of waste bins that have to be placed at all locations. The households and other premises should be charged for the services.
34 cities in Maharashtra, have been able to get three-star ratings while 41 have been able to take home one star each.
Navi Mumbai shares the ratings with 5 other cities for their waste management mechanism – Surat, Rajkot, Mysore, Indore and Ambikapur.
