AS Eid-ul-Azha is just around the corner, the administrations of the 18 towns and city government’s Municipal Services Department has chalked out a comprehensive plan for sanitation and cleanliness arrangements to benefit the citizens.

In this regard, an emergency has been imposed in all towns and the sanitation department’s staff will continue their duties until December 13, without any break. The town administrations have also established complaint centres in all respective union councils, which have been linked with their town offices to develop co-ordination during the Eid holidays.

In different towns including Gadap, Bin Qasim, Jamshed, Saddar and others, the officials identified sites where trenches will be dug up to dump offal and will be preserved to obtain manure, which will eventually be used in parks.

The officials from different town administrations told Daily Times that besides not allowing the sanitary workers and other concerned officials to go on leave, the town nazims have also issued directives to form special teams for removing offal and cleaning up the city.

“On Landhi Town Nazim Dr Irshad Ahmed’s directives, the administration has set up 14 complaint centres, 12 collection points and have deputed 150 sanitary workers to work around-the-clock,” Gulberg Town spokesperson said.

The spokesperson also confirmed that these arrangements have also been made by Town Nazim Kamal Malik.

“Besides setting up of collection points for offal, the sanitary staff has been linked with the UC nazims and councilors to carry out a perfect job during the Eid holidays,” he said.
It is also mentioned that the Municipal Services Department of the city government has also decided to offer all its machinery and staff on town level as part of a contingency plan regarding the arrangements for Eid.

The officials told Daily Times on Friday that more then 2,000 pick-ups will be used as a part of the operation, which will remove offal from collection points in every town and then dump them at a main collection point. Heavy machinery, including trucks, will clear the collection points and will dump all the offal at the landfill sites near Jam Chakro and trenches are also being dug to dump offal.
