Indore was adjudged the cleanest city for the fifth year in a row. Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) earns Rs 8 crore annually from the plants which convert waste into useful products such as bio-CNG. The cleanliness model of the city is based on 3 'R's -- Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. For the past six years, there are no big garbage containers in the city. About 700 vehicles with compartments to segregate six types of waste including bio-waste such as diapers and sanitary napkins collect garbage from almost every doorstep.
