With the increase of piggery, many youths have started collecting wastes which the pigs can consume. He further appealed to the people to start segregating solid wastes into degradable and non-degradable items as some people also started collecting plastic for recycling purposes.

If the people start the segregation process from home, then it will be easy for the garbage collector to collect wastes, he added.
