While talking to the media, Dr Yasmin Rashid said that LWMC is about to provide 6000 garbage containers to nine towns of the City and the initiative has taken its first action by providing the 950 containers to DGBT town.

LWMC has identified the points and shared a deployment plan of these new containers.

Keeping in view the waste collection from different areas and points, these new containers are of two different sizes i.e. 0.8 cubic meter and 5 cubic meter.

Initially 8,000 containers were placed in the city for the proper disposal of waste and currently 3,000 containers were available in the field. As per the total waste t containers will prove to be very effective in the reduction of garbage.

I believe, the revitalization of the LWMC will be very beneficial for the Lahorites. LWMC is continuously striving for the better standard for its functions, she continued.
