DSWMC cancels holidays of sanitary workers on Eid

RAWALPINDI: The District Solid Waste Management Company (DSWMC) has cancelled Eid holidays of around 2000 sanitary workers and officials of the department to ensure cleanliness during the Eid days.

The Solid Waste Company has finalized a comprehensive cleanliness plan for Eid-ul-Azha to get rid of entrails and offals of animals.

All available resources will be utilized to accomplish the task, Managing Director Solid Waste Management Irfan Qureshi told APP Friday.

He said 85 vehicles would be part of the special drive to remove remains of sacrificial animals from every nook and corner of the city.

DSWMC will deploy around 2000 sanitary workers in Rawal and Pothawar town areas to keep the towns neat and clean during Eid-ul-Azha.

He said that banners have been displayed at all main points of the city to create awareness among masses about the cleanliness campaign.

140 collection points have also been established 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, Qureshi said.

He said after completion of the cleanliness task and removal of offals, all collection points and other areas 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 solid waste on the day, he added.
