Each house owner should be asked to keep two boxes for disposal of waste which could be picked up twice in a week from a fixed place in front of the house during pre announce time slot of two hours. If they do not put these boxes outside house and just throw the waste/garbage on street there should be huge penalty imposed on the house owner. Likewise person in charge of lifting the waste from these boxes also should be assigned responsibility. Senior citizen can volunteer to monitor the performance of house owners and persons picking the waste from colony. more
