The Cabinet Minister said the aim of the government was to make the state free from single use plastic, proper waste management and achieve the goal of zero waste to landfill. To achieve this objective, wet and dry waste would be segregated from the sources place. He said that this wet and dry waste would be composted through MRF machines and its fertiliser would be made.

The entire fair area has been divided into eight sectors by the department. Sanitary inspectors, teams of sewer men and sanitation workers from 14 municipal corporations and municipal councils of the state have been deployed for the purpose of cleanliness at Hola Mohalla at Sri Anandpur Sahib.
