Chandigarh, May 19

Chandigarh got the 3-star garbage-free city tag today for its waste management.

Mayor Raj Bala Malik said the Centre today released a rating of cities for their garbage management, giving the ‘3 star garbage-free’ tag to Chandigarh.

MC Commissioner KK Yadav said the ratings were based on 25 parameters across the solid waste management spectrum and designed to help cities assess their progress.

Yadav said the star rating was supported by a robust verification mechanism to ensure transparency and standardisation. Cities were required to carry out self-assessment and self-verification for achieving a certain star rating.

This self-declaration was verified through an agency appointed by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs for the garbage-free star ratings, he added.
