Talking to APP, Direcstor Sanitation MCI, Saradar Khan Zimri said the proper garbage disposal issue of the Federal Capital was about to resolve as major consensus had been developed on the landfill site. He said that proper dumpsters were also placed in the Kachi abadies of sectors G-7 and F-7/4 for waste disposal and solid waste management.
“The residents of G-7 slums are not cooperating with CDA whereas the authority has issued 40 notices to the area residents on violation and openly throwing garbage in the area,” he added. G-7 and F-7 Kachi abadies have been cleansed in the recent campaign whereas in the next we would proceed towards G-8 sector slum areas.
The major issue was dearth of machinery as 25 percent population was throwing garbage in the nullahs,” Sardar Zimri said.
“CDA team has disposed of 500 tonnes of garbage from Tarnol last weekend where all officials have not availed their off days for this operation clean up. During the last week same was carried out in Tramri Chowk and its vicinity,” Director CDA added.—APP
