In order to create awareness on cleanliness in Dimapur, the Community Avenue Network (CAN) Youth in collaboration with Better Dimapur and Dimapur District Autorickshaw Drivers’ union (DDADU), powered by Dimapur Municipal Council (DMC), launched sensitization awareness campaign on litter free zone and launching of mini dustbins in autorickshaws at Tourist Lodge, Dimapur on May 22. 

Office Superintendent, DMC, Ganesh Sharma, in his address recorded appreciation to CAN Youth for coming up with innovative idea to make Dimapur a cleaner place to live in. He expressed the hope that with the small step of placing dustbins in autorickshaws, it will not only make Dimapur cleaner but also change the mindset of the people in general. He also said such innovative idea will be seen in many parts of the country in the near future. 
He also urged auto drivers to dump the garbage collected at DMC dumping site or dustbins and   contribute towards a cleaner Dimapur. 
President, DDADU, I.Vitoshe Sema, in his address acknowledged CAN Youth for reaching out to the union in initiating the project, which was beneficial not only for the drivers and the passengers but for a better and cleaner Dimapur.
He also mentioned that though the drivers have never been acknowledged for their noble deeds, they will continue to sacrifice for a better Dimapur with assistance and further urged upon CAN Youth to continue assisting the union. He also assured that the union will cooperate for a better Dimapur as it has become part of the family of CAN Youth through the collaboration.          
Member of Better Dimapur, Along Aier, explained that the innovative idea was in response to the dirty environment. 
Aier said though the campaign demanded time, energy and money there was no option for a clean environment which is a priority. 
He lamented that public of Dimapur had no civic sense and lauded CAN Youth for coming up with the initiative to make Dimapur a cleaner and hygienic place to live in. 
Aier also commended that thousands commute daily in autorickshaws  and from the  small initiative, huge quantities of waste will be disposed off where they belong to make the city cleaner and healthier place 
Chief Functionary, CAN Youth, Jenpu Rongmei, described autorickshaw drivers like the face of Dimapur and they can be the best example to the commuters to keep the city clean. 
He also informed that the initiative to place mini dustbins in Dimpaur was the first of its kind in whole of North East and was confident that it will create influence not only in the minds of drivers but also commuters who utilize Autorickshaws.  
Secretary, CAN Youth, Kivitoli K Chishi shared about installation of the waste bins as a project that was initiated with the trust that the drivers can lead in keeping the city clean. She hoped that the act of throwing waste inside the auto or along the road, which has become a habit for the travellers, will end through the available dustbins in the auto rickshaw.
She also encouraged the drivers to sensitise the passengers to make use of the dustbins provided for dry waste only.   
Earlier, the programme was compeered by Faihamti Longmaili and invocation offered by Sentiwati Kichu. 
Denizens of Dimapur can expect to see  autorickshaw drivers trying to keep the city clean by having mini dust bin placed inside their vehicle and a badge that reads,” a pledge for a better and cleaner Dimapur”. 
At the first phase 20 mini dustbins were installed, while the next phase of installation will begin from June, 2019.
