LAHORE: Lahore Waste Management Company (LWMC) managing director has given standing instructions to the department to clean the city within 72 hours or ‘go home’.

In a press release issued here Wednesday, LWMC Managing Director Khalid Nazir directed all operational staff should remain in field for the next three days without any exemption. In this context, a special cleanliness operation with extra ordinary arrangements was initiated which was directly being monitored by the managing director, GM Operations Sohail Anwar Malik and other top management of the company.

The MD said all aspects of cleanup operation would be closely monitored including manual sweeping, mechanical sweeping washing and plot clearance followed by presence of workers at choking points.
