The agreement will entail garbage collection by the company in South and East districts of the city. The Chinese company will collect garbage from citizen’s houses, free of charge.
While trashcans and large-sized garbage containers will be installed in localities of the two districts, government is also planning to sign a similar agreement for other districts of Karachi.
