The Lahore Waste Management Company (LWMC) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Akhtar Hameed Memorial Trust (AHMT) to improve the waste management process by adopting scientific procedures.

A ceremony in this regard was held at the LWMC head office, here on Tuesday. AKHMT Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sumaira Gul and Director Hameedullah attended the event. Deputy CEO LWMC Fahad Mehmood and Muhammad Aurangzaib, along with General Manager Planning & Projects Dr. Kamran and other official were also present.

While talking to the media LWMC CEO Babar Sahib Din said that Akhtar Hameed Trust would provide support to the company for a better model of waste segregation and management. Waste segregation would start in Union Council (UC) 81, 83, 198, and 218 as a pilot project and workers would be trained to separate useful items from garbage.

AKHMT CEO Sumaira Gul said that in the first phase, revenue would be collected for the company by separating useful items at the level of waste enclosures.

The green-waste obtained from the enclosures would be used at the compost plant.
