The Sindh Solid Waste Management Board has finalized its waste disposal plan for the three days of Eidul Azha.
The plan was formulated at a meeting presided over by SSWMB Managing Director Attur Das Sajnani on Friday.
The meeting decided that SSWMB teams will work in coordination with district municipal corporations in four Karachi districts. The SSWMB is responsible for waste management in West, East, Malir and South districts.
Location-wise complaint cells and collection points will be set up at different spots in these districts under the supervision of SSWMB.
For the convenience of the general public, the SSWMB can also be reached on a WhatsApp number i.e. 0312-2847607. The people can contact on the said number for disposal of offal and other animal waste, as well as registration of their complaints.
As per the plan, the SSWMB will establish 51 waste collection points in four districts. Of these, 18 collection points will be established in West district, 16 in East, 13 in South and four in Malir district.
The teams of SSWMB and district municipal corporations will collect waste from different areas and drop at these collection points. It will then be transported to dumping sites.
“No dumping points or trenches would be dug within the precincts of the city,” Sajnani said. “The waste will only be dumped at three points: Jam Chakro, Gondpas and Sharafi Goth.”
The SSWMB MD said that lime powder will be sprinkled and proper fumigation will be carried out at slaughter sites across the metropolis.
