Stepping towards cleanliness

The tremendous efforts of Punjab Govt in the form of ‘Khadim-e-Punjab Saaf Dehat Program’ must be adulated that intends to see litter free villages of Punjab in forthcoming years. Having said that, this initiative could have been taken earlier in order to provide effective solid waste management services in rural areas across Punjab where it hardly exist.
The key objective of this program is to ameliorate the quality of life by the provision of efficient waste collection services. Through this package, almost 3281 rural Union Councils in nine Divisions of the Punjab would be touched and 20,000 tons of municipal solid waste would be collecting and transporting to the designated dumping sites on a daily basis. This would surely witness positive changes in terms of environment, health of the people and significantly restrict them to migrate to urban areas.
