Rawalpindi Waste Management Company (RWMC) has cancelled holidays of around 3000 sanitary workers and officials to ensure cleanliness during Eid Ul Azha days.
“The Company has finalized a comprehensive cleanliness plan for Eid-ul-Azha to get rid of entrails and offals of the sacrificed animals, Manager Operation Dr Hamid Iqbal told APP here Friday.
He told that dumpers, mini dumpers, handcarts,and compactors would be part of the special drive to remove the remains from every nook and corner of the city.
RSWMC will deploy around 3000 sanitary workers in Rawalpindi Municipal Corporation areas to keep the areas clean .
“ Collection points would also be set up for the convenience of the public at Union Council level and the residents have been directed to contact on Help line number 1139 about any complaints,” Hamid said.
He also informed that 400,000 waste bags would be distributed among the residents for collecting animal offals, size of 20-22kg of small animals and 50kg for camel, buffaloes and others while hand carts would be used in the narrow streets where large size waste vehicles have no access ,he added.
He said after completion of the task, the area would be cleaned properly and sprayed. Eid ul Azha is the busiest time of year for sanitary workers, as the city generates twice its average daily amount of waste on the day, he added.—APP
