Cleanliness Tops Margao Councillors’ Agenda

Margao may well change for the better wearing a cleaner and neater look as garbage management and cleanliness is the first priority all the newly elected councillors give themselves. For Rosy Pereira who represents the market area, making the market look clean and neat would be the topmost priority while Doris Texeira suggests that a dedicated pick-up be kept only to collect waste from the New Market.

For first time councillor Arthur D’Silva, the roadside dust bins should be enclosed to prevent stray dog from scattering the waste in the bins while for most of the other councillors, regular emptying the bins is a must.
For Joseph D’Silva, Dayanand Deulkar and Pratima Coutinho, door to door collection is the answer to give Margao a cleaner look as they believe that this will eliminate the need to have dust bins by the roadside.
