Ukhrul, Oct 16: Ukhrul ADC Chairman Dr Yaronsho Ngalung today flagged off the newly purchased Tata Tipper for carrying solid waste materials across Ukhrul Town during a simple function held at ADC Office complex, Phungreitang, Ukhrul, today
Dr Yaronsho, while speaking at the programme, expressed that the Tata Tipper was procured to ensure better services and for timely collection of waste materials to reduce the burden of solid waste management in every household of Ukhrul Town.
Saying that the three trucks of the ADC Department, Ukhrul used for collecting waste materials were not sufficient to provide satisfactory services, he added that the Ukhrul ADC members, therefore, decided to purchase another truck for public convenience.
Small Town Committee under ADC, Ukhrul will handle these affairs of keeping the town clean, collecting wastes and dispose at a proper dumping site on a daily basis.
The Chairman mentioned that the Tata Tipper was purchased under 15th Finance Commission.
The programme was attended by Executive Members, Edmund Chiphang and Ramshang, Councillor Mark Luithing, CEO, Polly Makan and ADC staff.
