To maintain the status of first ran of Ferozepur in the state and 64th at the national level in Sanitation Survey-2022, Deputy Commissioner, Ferozepur Amrit Singh released a banner to join campaign to make garbage-free Ferozepur.
Speaking on the occasion, DC said, the unique initiative of making paper bags and eliminating plastic by disabled employees, was also appreciated in the survey report.

Around 6500 city dwellers in the city were connected with the Swachhta App. Ferozepur team created cleanliness clubs by creating awareness among the city residents and connected around 20 schools/colleges and more than 4000 city residents. Both shifts, night sweeping and mechanical sweeping also contributed significantly and citizens can register their complaints regarding cleanliness.
She also asked them to keep two dustbins of green and blue separately in their houses for cleanliness and also keep the surroundings clean.
