TNS HOLIDAY ON NOV 28 Chandigarh: The UT Admn has announced a public holiday in all government offices/boards/ corporations/institutions on November 28 on account of Guru Teg Bahadur’s martyrdom day. TNS Chandigarh, November 24 In a first, collection and transportation of garbage from different public parks of the city is set to go into private hands. The local Municipal Corporation is going to put up more than 3,700 twin dustbins in public parks across the city. At present, many public parks are without the required number of dustbins and there is no proper mechanism to lift the waste. As a result, garbage can be seen dumped or scattered both inside and outside parks. To tackle this problem, the civic body has decided to hire an agency to fix responsibility for the job and get the work done in a professional manner. The firm will not be responsible for the horticulture waste, most of which goes to the composting pits constructed inside the parks. The agency will have a dedicated job of lifting garbage from dustbins and transport it to city’s three waste stations. “The MC has 1,800 parks/green belts in the city.
