Hyderabad: The GHMC officials have been sensitising street vendors about the threat that plastic bags pose to the environment.
Vendors have been asked to use eco-friendly plastic glasses and covers in NTR Marg, which happens to be situated on the banks of Hussainsagar.
A senior GHMC official said that the corporation has distributed bins among the vendors in NTR Marg and asked them not to litter the roads or dump their waste into Hussainsagar. The corporation has also advised them to use eco-friendly plastic, he said.
“Our sensitisation drive has begun on the banks of Hussainsagar and will eventually spread to the other water bodies in the city. The programme aims for a plastic-free Hyderabad and we aspire to achieve that by preventing the illegal dumping of plastic into water bodies including nalas, tanks, lakes, etc,” he added....
