LAHORE:On the directions of Chief Minister, Lahore Waste Management Company carried out successful Eidul Azha cleanliness operation in the provincial capital.

The Lahore Waste Management Company (LWMC) disposed of record breaking 54,000 tons of animal waste particularly offal during three days of the Eid. The operation was backed by day and night working of thousands of sanitary workers, machinery, including pickups, compactors, dumpers, loaders, and on the support of Turkish contractor companies i.e. Albayrak and Ozpak. The chief minister appreciated Solid Waste Management arrangements of the company during all days of Eid and acknowledged the efforts of these dedicated workers who sacrificed their Eid holidays and helped to ensure a clean environment for Lahorites to make them enjoy the eve but appreciation by us can serve them more than anything.

The company chairman, MD and other officials paid a frequent visit across the city to monitor the cleanliness operation. They monitored the whole operation from the video wall control room. The chairman said that the department was working in the light of the chief minister’s direction. The entire staff of LWMC deserves appreciation over their exceptional performance during Eid.

The strategy also focused on swift and timely lifting of animal waste from streets engaging additional pickups and transportation of waste firstly to 119 temporary waste collection and transfer stations and later on, five designated dumpsites.
