Indore/ To make city disposal free, Indore Municipal Corporation sets up free utensil bank, booking via toll free number

Indore: Indore, cleanest city in the country, will now be made disposable free. If there is any programme in your house then you do not need to buy disposable plates to serve to the guests. For this, you should call the Indore Municipal Corporation on their toll-free number and make a booking. You will get free utensils.

The condition is that you will not use any kind of disposable goods in the event. The facility, which is going to start soon, has been named IMC Bartan Bank. This arrangement will be the first in the country, where the municipal corporation will provide the utensils on the lines of the tent houses.

In the initial phase, the corporation has arranged the utensils according to a programme of about 500 people. With its toll-free number (0731-4987161), people will have to make booking in advance. They have to arrange to take the utensils from the office of the corporation on the next day of the programme, they will also have to return them.

The utensils provided by the corporation will include plates, glasses and other utensils. Those who use utensils must also motivate others to make use of this arrangement. Every organiser will be recorded in the register and their feedback will also be noted. 

Indore Mayor Malini Gaud said, “This project has been started to make the entire city free of disposable. Disposal and plastic are very harmful. The chambers and drains get choked. Initially we have arranged 500 utensils. After getting the public support, we will increase the number of utensils so that large programmes can also get the benefit of this facility.
