Uttarakhand’s Cleanliness Campaign is giving us goals for being Eco-friendly

To make the city free from open defecation, Haldwani Municipal Corporation has placed stickers related to the cleanliness campaign on the E-rickshaws of the city. Not just this, the E-rickshaw drivers are also contributing to this noble cause by informing the passengers about the cleanliness drive.

One of the E-rickshaw drivers said, “E-rickshaws are environment friendly. The posters have been used to make aware of the bad effect of polluting the land, river and air. We are making the people aware that they should not spread the waste in open and should dump it in dustbin”.

Introducing E-rickshaw is a great initiative taken by the Municipal Corporation as it is pollution free. Out of 230 E-rickshaws running in the city, the Municipal Corporation has registered around 150 in this unique initiative.

Senior Administrative Officer, Suresh Adhikari said, “We made this recommendation in front of our city magistrate and after that we chalked out the plan to carry out the cleanliness campaign. We tried to carry out the initiative which would attract the people and they would be interested in listening”. He further said that the initiative has been widely appreciated and hopefully many people will be inspired from it.
