He said that each street vendor should keep dustbins and officials have been ordered to carry out a special drive to install dustbins within a week.
The Commissioner also instructed the officials to see that no street vendors should be there within 500 meter radius around 161 water logging areas in the city, he said. He said that four vehicles should be reserved for each circle in the city to collect garbage in the evenings from coming Monday.
