At 6:30 am, Pooja Baberiya, 26, wrapped a multi-coloured scarf over her cloth mask, leaving only her eyes exposed, which she covered with sunglasses. She put on gloves and a white coat with the familiar Swachh Bharat logo and slung an identity card given by the Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) around her neck.

She was ready to go out with IMC’s trash collection van, but her task was taking orders for groceries from households along the van’s route.

Several cities, including Surat and Ahmedabad, are delivering groceries to homes but Indore (along with Bhopal) is one of the few giving a new spin to its award-winning urban waste management system.
