The residents of Begur on Sunday installed tilting dustbins along the Begur road with the help of the BBMP, as they spread awareness on cleanliness.

While residents fixed the dumpsters under the banner of Federation of Beautiful Begur, women and children in the locality participated in a walkathon.

“Around 12 tilting dustbins were sponsored by the corporator of Begur ward, Anjanappa,  and the Redbridge International Academy. The installation was done by volunteers. Half of the work has been completed. We will complete the rest in the coming weeks,” said K Prakash, vice president, Federation of Beautiful Begur.

Other campaigns

The citizens group will also take help from the Palike to install e-toilets soon as part of their ‘Beautiful Begur’ campaign.

The federation celebrated its 52nd week of the Swachh Begur cleaning drive with the programme ‘Parikrama’ on Sunday by conducting a walkathon. As part of the event, they also conducted a free health camp for BBMP workers.

“We’re working to support the government machinery to complete the pending civic works. We still don’t have the Cauvery water connection, which will be our top priority. We also want good roads,” Prakash added.
