Most of the swachh work is being carried out by middle aged women and older men, Ms Bedi meets them to appreciate their efforts.The workers said that while they clean, some people litter the place again in their very presence. Ms Bedi feels, "It is time for people to respect their services. A while from now even their services will become difficult to get. Or not affordable as is the case in the West. Earlier we switch to source segregation and mechanised collection and then waste to wealth / energy/ manure/ creation, the better shall it be."
