Jalandhar, June 17

Having designed an application software for garbage management in the city, Nanaki Singh, a Class XII student of Cambridge International School for Girls, met Municipal Corporation Commissioner Karnesh Sharma to give a presentation on it.

Named ‘Bin the Dirt’, the app as per Nanaki focuses on adoption of systematic procedure for placement of dustbins in the city, proper disposal and timely collection of household garbage and other litter. “The app is also helpful for receiving notifications and information regarding collection and disposal schedule of household garbage/waste in various areas of the city. It also has features such as time schedule, frequency of service for collection of garbage and the numbers to contact in case of any complaint,” she explained.
