Two days after Karachi mayor Waseem Akhter demanded a targeted development campaign for the city, Sindh government and a Chinese company have signed an agreement for garbage disposal in the metropolitan.

According to Radio Pakistan, the agreement for the much-needed system took place between Chinese company Wuzung and the Sindh Solid Waste Management Board.

Of politics, power and polarisation in Karachi

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.


Sohail Rana | 6 years ago | Reply Interesting comments typical Pakistani respone blame everyone else. Please tell me who generates the garbage? How many of you personally got involved to join hands with people in your area formed a neighborhood group made sure everyone complied with cleanliness? There is a lack of personal responsibility that permeates in our society we are lazy, complain tear down as this become. National pastime. At least the Chinese are cleaning since each one of us are not!
Usman | 6 years ago | Reply Elected representatives of Karachi haven't given the authority but the Chines are authorized to lift the trash from Karachi. Exceptionally shameful Sindh Govt. May ALLAH help Karachiites
