This issue is dedicated to housekeeping, especially to all the hardworking housekeepers in the hospitality industry who strive to see that your stay at a hotel turns ‘awesome’. The housekeeping department is partially visible, partially hidden; and to appreciate the extent to which its function is fast spreading, one needs to understand the way housekeeping is intertwined with other departments and how in fact, it determines the overall impact a hotel makes. So, all roads are leading to Colombo where the largest gathering of housekeepers and general managers is happening.

With the onslaught of monsoon, many parts of India are grappling with two of the biggest issues: Plastic ban and waste management. Though Maharashtra won the highest number of awards at the Swachh Survekshan 2018 at the hands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Municipal Commissioner of Mumbai, Ajoy Mehta, stated that scientific processing and disposal of garbage & debris was the biggest challenge before the Corporation. The main yardstick for Swachh Survekshan has been garbage collection, transportation and segregation.The State Urban Development department has been working relentlessly as per the parameters set. The total garbage collection, which stood at 9,500 metric tonnes per day in 2015, has been reduced to 7,100 per day following segregation.

It is encouraging that an action plan for scientific processing of waste is being worked out, including recycling the debris into construction material.

As this issue of Clean India Journal is going to press, Mumbai traders are battling out with the ban on single-use plastic items, including shopping bags, food containers and cutlery. Maharashtra has become the 18th State in India to enforce the ban. For once, people in Mumbai are willing to try out using sustainable alternatives like jute and cloth bags. Indian Government has pledged to eliminate singleuse plastic in India by 2022,joining a global campaign.
