Do's and dont's:Corporation Commissioner
Tirupur: Corporation Commissioner R. Jayalakshmi has called upon the councillors to educate the public in respective wards to use the toilets properly for better maintenance and life of underground drainage network in the city.
She explained the ‘don'ts' that needed to be followed to the elected representatives of the wards at a special sensitisation programme on maintenance of underground drainage organised by the administration for councillors here on Thursday.
The tips received at the event would be disseminated by the councillors to the masses to ensure that the drains were not clogged.
The councillors were given a set of three leaflets meant for distribution to households, hospitals and hotels, which carried messages against the disposal of sanitary napkins and diapers into the toilet basin, among other instructions.
People should refrain from disposing medicines, bandages, food wastes, used condoms and cigarettes into the toilets, Ms. Jayalakshmi cautioned.
The Commissioner said the lodge premises should display materials to educate the customers against disposing any solid waste and wrappers into the toilet basin, which could result in blocking the free flow of water in the drainage system.
Mayor K. Selvaraj and City Health Officer K. R. Jawaharlal, among others, were present.
Later, Ms. Jayalakshmi interacted with the councillors to brief them of their roles in assisting the census enumerators during the second phase of Census-2011 that was to begin on February 9.
