“Dry and wet waste should be collected separately and dry waste will be collected once in a week,” he said.

Health standing committee Chairperson Kavith Sanil said that the collected dry and wet waste should be given to the vehicles accordingly. In case the waste is not separated then the vehicle staff will not collect the waste.
