KARACHI: Bahria Town has received accolades for the quality of cleaning work and lifting of thousands of tonnes of garbage since the commencement of its 2nd ‘Clean Karachi’ campaign on October 3, 2017, says a statement issued by the Bahria Town Karachi on Saturday.

The ‘Clean Karachi Campaign’ kicked off from the Central District of Karachi. The areas that come under this district are further divided into four zones – Liaquatabad, New Karachi, Gulberg and North Nazimabad.

More than 12,000 tonnes of garbage has already been lifted from zone one – Liaquatabad – and dumped in the official dumping site of Jam Chakro.
