HCL Foundation Launches a Rapid Cleaning Program to Help Transform Noida into India’s Cleanest City
Noida: HCL Foundation through its Project Clean NOIDA, today launched a new initiative – the ‘Chakachak’ Village program. As part of this, it will introduce four ‘Jatayu’ vehicles for automatic litter picking, covering the 61 urban villages in Noida. Ms Roshni Nadar Malhotra, Chairperson, HCL Technologies along with Mr Alok Varma, Project Director, HCL Foundation flagged off these vehicles at the HCL Campus in Sector 126, Noida.
‘Jatayu’ forms an important arm of the Clean NOIDA program during the pandemic as it allows to manage solid waste and maintain hygiene standards in the city’s villages while avoiding interaction between waste and workers.
Additionally, as part of the Chakachak initiative, a team of 20-25 people from Clean NOIDA will survey the hygiene situation at each urban village in the city and undertake by-weekly cleaning and beautification drives. The team will also distribute dustbins, share regular messages within local WhatsApp groups and organize virtual workshops to sensitize citizens against open waste dumping and effective waste segregation methods.
