Informing and involving the community, as well as creating channels for all stakeholders to participate in making decisions and to voice their concerns. A common approach is to consult these groups to ascertain people’s perception of the existing waste management services, their expectations, and the extent to which they are willing to support and participate in the process. And for this now the Mayor Chandigarh Mr. Kuldeep Kumar will soon start holding monthly meetings with the residents.
